Vendor software bug affects Honda well-being website users


MARYSVILLE – Limeade, a company that provides employee well-being solutions to Honda, has notified Honda that a software bug caused some trackable activities on its well-being website to be viewable by other Honda participants who joined the same activity.

The software glitch, which was fixed within a few hours after its discovery, affected about 775 Honda participants in Ohio.

Examples of tracked activities that could have been viewed by other participants include the number of steps tracked in a day, hours slept, or completion of a dental appointment. While a participant’s username could have been viewed by other participants, no other personally identifiable information, such as a mailing address or social security number, was viewable.

All affected participants have been notified.
