This is older news that is being released now. The Russians sat on this for a year so their billionaire could talk about it while announcing his $100 million gift to SETI. This press release was about a month after they found the blip. No mention of the signal in anything I can dig up, but I'm darn near certain I heard people talking about this. I may be confusing it with the "WOW" signal (see related Hubski articles below).
Looking at the data, this correlates to a talk about the "WOW" signal and that it may be a micro lensing of a distant object that gets momentarily magnified and sharpened by the gravity well of something in between earth and the emitter. They used this technique to find low mass stars in M22 for example.
The star itself is interesting. The planet is about the weight of Neptune, orbits in 40 days meaning it is in an orbit closer than Mercury while the star is "Sun Like" so this one known planet is boiling away and way too hot for any form of life we would know or understand.
As this star is easily visible in a telescope, maybe I will incorporate it into my upcoming outreach events.
