Wow, then they need to involve Google, MS, Apple and AWS as well

The lawsuit, filed in US District Court for the Northern District of California, claims that GitHub (now owned by Microsoft) "actively encourages" hackers,  and that this active encouragement means that it has a higher responsibility than most repositories to scan uploaded files for dangerous or illicit data.

This lawsuit is almost laughable, anything that is deemed positive can be turned negative. Github is a repository for developers to come up with code and sharing that code with other organizations to address problems in the wild, I think this is more of a company trying to divert blame as opposed to facing the facts and being accountable for their actions. This says alot about CapitalOne - the organization - who has been blindsided by someone whom they dealt with in the recent past; but it also sheds light on their lack of oversight and attention to detail (this says a lot about the organization as a whole).

I am looking forward to hearing more about the lawsuit and interested in hearing what the judge says in the hearing, this should be interesting.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
