Pentagon subcontractor leaks classified personnel data

“A security researcher at the MacKeeper Security Research Center has revealed a Pentagon subcontractor exposed sensitive U.S. military health care personnel data thanks to an insecure server backup protocol.

MacKeeper’s Chris Vickery determined that at least 11 gigabytes of confidential data — including that of active top-secret security clearance holders — became accessible because of a server misconfiguration by Booz Allen Hamilton subcontractor Potomac Healthcare Solutions, according to a Dec. 31 post by Charlie Osborne on ZDNet’s Zero Day blog. “
