      Right? Imagine if they had exfiltrated everything; this could be much worse. This seems like it might be a greyhat effort to get people to secure their databases, especially given the whole metaphor of cats dropping things off of tables and filling the empty air with their meows. That’s just too funny to be an accident.

      Kudos to the cats behind these attacks.
