Atlassian's Response to the Codecov Breach

On April 15th, Codecov disclosed that “someone had gained unauthorized access to their Bash Uploader script and modified without their permission”.

Atlassian immediately began investigating the incident. Though Atlassian uses Codecov tools within our environment for a small number of internal projects, our own investigation has concluded that our network and cloud products are not affected.

Upon deeper investigations, we identified a small number of variables that may have been exposed to the bad actor and did not find any malicious use of these credentials. We then rotated all potentially exposed secrets or credentials, preventing any future misuse of them.

We did identify a number of Bitbucket customers using Codecov within their pipelines and have notified them directly of any impacts to their account and shared recommended steps for remediation.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and provide updates as necessary.

Thank you for not waiting an unreasonable amount of time to disclose this. Transparency of security incidents definitely increases my trust with Atlassian. Sweeping it under the rug doesn't do anyone any good. :)
