GitHub and WeChat enter into a partnership
Microsoft GitHub officially issued a communiqué on December 20 announcing a partnership between Github and Tencent WeChat to help protect common users across all public and private repositories. GitHub Key Scan protects users by searching the repository for known types of keys. By identifying and tagging these keys, it helps prevent data breaches and fraud. Tencent WeChat tokens, on the other hand, allow users to authenticate WeChat public and applet developers, access sensitive information about business applications, and can be used to authenticate merchants. GitHub forwards access tokens found in public repositories to WeChat, which will notify affected users. WeChat encourages users to delete the leaked API token on GitHub and create a new token on the WeChat Payments merchant platform or the WeChat Public Platform.
