City of Boston License Plate Reader Data Was Inadvertently Accessible to the Public

“Up until two weeks ago, if someone saw your sleek ride and wanted to rob your mansion, they could find your parking permit number to obtain your address, according to one investigative reporter. The system — publicly viewable with files available for download — included motor vehicle records that dated back to 2012. It is unclear how long the system had been exposed before a reporter noticed the apparent security lapse. The open server was intended for file sharing, primarily among municipal parking enforcers.”
