Over 120 Million US Consumers Exposed in Privacy Snafu

Updated: May 1

Security researchers have discovered a publicly exposed cloud database containing personal data and behavioral profiles on 120 million Americans.

Security company UpGuard found the misconfigured Amazon S3 bucket on February 3 this year, eventually tracing it back to market analysis company Tetrad.

Around half of the 747GB trove appears to have been sourced from client organizations.

It included: data extracted from Chipotle employees’ mobile phones for tracking, a spreadsheet containing the home addresses of 700,000 Kate Spade customers and 3.5 million loyalty card accounts for beverage retailer Bevmo, including physical address tied to each account
