The Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday said its “EDGAR” public-company filing system had been hacked. SEC Chairman Jay Clayton said in a statement that last month “the Commission learned that an incident previously detected in 2016 may have provided the basis for illicit gain through trading.” “Specifically, a software vulnerability in the test filing component of our EDGAR system, which was patched promptly after discovery, was exploited and resulted in access to nonpublic information,” Clayton said.
