Hotel booking site got hit with a €475,000 fine for being late to report a data breach, the company's lead EU privacy regulator announced Wednesday.

The fine, imposed by the Dutch data protection authority because the company is legally established in Amsterdam, came after criminals stole the personal data of more than 4,000 customers — obtaining the credit card details of nearly 300 victims.

The website received the penalty for missing a 72-hour deadline to report the breach to the regulator, which it did on February 4, 2019 — almost a month after it suffered the breach.

Software Security

In yet another instance of a software supply chain attack, unidentified actors hacked the official Git server of the PHP programming language and pushed unauthorized updates to insert a secret backdoor into its source code.

The two malicious commits were pushed to the self-hosted "php-src" repository hosted on the server, illicitly using the names of Rasmus Lerdorf, the author of the programming language, and Nikita Popov, a software developer at Jetbrains.

The changes are said to have been made yesterday on March 28.
