Hard to believe this is the company enabled to hold all of our most private data… I am already getting phishing phone calls from random 1-800 numbers talking about ominous “security breaches” and asking me to call back

Execs dumped stock after the company learned of the breach, but before it was announced to the public. That’s the definition of insider trading. They are claiming they didn’t know, but the sales weren’t prearranged.
