So, I pushed an update to one of my repositories, which only consists of 3 jupyter notebooks and associated support files. After pushing the update, I received an email alert from gitguardian:
GitGuardian has detected the following Okta Token exposed within your GitHub account.
- Secret type: Okta Token
I don’t really know what it could have found, or why I got the alert when I had not signed up for gitguardian (since I got the alert I did sign up, but I did not have gitguardian before that).
What would prompt this sort of thing? I don’t really know much about an okta token - I tried looking it up but it seemed like it would take many days of research before I would have a chance to make any sense of it, and this repository does not have anything I can think of that would present a security problem on my system.
This is the repository: https://github.com/pegenaran/philcovid
Thanks in advance.
