Damn, now I need to check when my last purchase was. Looks like August 5th, so I am “safe”.

I don't why I am surprised anymore. Security takes effort and money, two things people really don't like to part with. But still... Facepalm

With only skimming info about the incident (so not knowing how lazy they were) I will just say that security IS an arms race.  You can be paying for good security and shit can still get through.  Organized crime across the globe is dumping millions of dollars into cyber theft efforts and development, let alone what some of the more shady nation states are up to.  Things keep getting more complex, which keeps creating new avenues for attack.  Especially with all that I've seen now working in this job, I'm honestly amazed private companies have done as well as they have.

Having seen first hand the amount of sheer, unadulterated incompetence at work in private companies of all sizes, I'm surprised most of them aren't just smoking craters.
