Leaky Amazon S3 Buckets Expose Data of Netflix, TD Bank
UpGuard researchers recently discovered three unprotected cloud storage buckets that exposed over a terabyte of data from Netflix, TD Bank, Ford and various other Fortune 100 companies that do business with data management firm Attunity. The exposed data included confidential business documents, system passwords, and sensitive employee information such as email messages.
The researchers state that “the risks to Attunity posed by exposed credentials, information, and communications, are risks to the security of the data they process.”
Security researchers often stumble across misconfigured and unprotected cloud storage buckets, even though securing these solutions is very easy.
