The personal data of American scouts hit the Internet
Personal details of American soldiers and intelligence officers were in the public domain on the Internet.
Available for download was addresses, phone numbers and email accounts. In addition to information about military and intelligence officials, the network got the data of one American police and a UN official who worked in the middle East, reports the Hill.
What personal information fell into the public access, said the employee of the company Upguard Chris Vickery.
“I hope we’re the only ones who found them,” said Vickery.
Information was leaked to the Internet from the database of a private company TigerSwan, working in the field of security. The company kept on the “cloud” server summary of applicants and applications to work with 2009. Because of an error in the system of data protection, the files were in the public domain on the Amazon website.
Previously portal iz.ru reported about the leak of 700 million email addresses from the database service online to spam. This leakage, which has become one of the largest in history, it is also occurred due to a failure in the system of data protection.
