I am looking at the Kim Zetter article. So Kim discusses the changes in October of 2019.

Source Reference:
CISA has released Alert (AA20-352A) on December 17, 2020. (The image below is from "Appendix A")

So the tampered code "2019.4.5200.8890" was in the October 2019.

Minor note: Today the podcast is listed as "SN 799 Security Now!" in Overcast and Apple Podcasts. The notes however are titled, "Security Now! #798 - 12-29-20 Sunburst & Supernova"

"The patching will continue until security improves!"
