    Kind of not that scary since it's an entertainment company. Same thing happened in Bulgaria a month or two ago with the mobile app of one of the big banks and it became the biggest meme for a while.

    The question is:

    How do you feel about being a testee?

    In the US Target is one of the biggest retail stores.

    I found a they had a testing modal pop up that displayed the VPN ip address if you used a VPN while using their app.

    I contacted them, never heard back, but they fixed it shortly after with a quick update.

    I mean... If you look into Chaos Monkey, Netflix has been doing that for years...

    TLDR: "Chaos Monkey is responsible for randomly terminating instances in production to ensure that engineers implement their services to be resilient to instance failures."
