Massive Oklahoma Government Data Leak Exposes 7 Years of FBI Investigations
In the latest data leak stemming from an unsecured web server, 3 terabytes of data belonging to the Oklahoma Securities Commission has been found exposed to the Internet. The millions of unencrypted files included highly sensitive government information, such as details of FBI investigations, email archives and social security numbers.
An UpGuard researcher found the leaky server, accessible to anyone with an internet connection, in December. He then notified the Oklahoma Securities Commission, which took the server off the Internet. The agency is currently investigating the incident.
