Mike Mimoso talks to Chris Vickery of UpGuard of the recent rash of Amazon S3 data leaks. Vickery uncovers of the commonalities among these leaks, some of which include AWS misconfigurations and mismanagement of third-party partner relationships.
Private intelligence gathering firm LocalBlox leaked data on 48 million users that was scraped from Facebook, LinkedIn, Zillow and other sites.
The vulnerability also exposed login credentials for a massive national insurance claims database, Upguard says.
Octoly’s incident response was sorely lacking, says the Upguard researcher who found the exposed repository.
