2.7 million medical calls breached in Sweden
The calls were stored on a NAS connected to the internet with no authentication or encryption, with people's phone numbers in the file names of audio files
@gargron can we really call it a "breach" when you just put it in an open cardboard box in the middle of the town square tho
@Gargron For any swedes who want a t-shirt of this: https://shop.geeks.se/se/article.php?art=165022559
@Gargron wtf?! It's kind of incredible this intrusion didn't happen immediately after the data was put online.
It's also not quite correct for them to call this a breach when they put the files out there for anyone to see and take with zero controls what so ever. 🙄
@clacke Hah. Then it's pretty safe to assume that stuff has been downloaded lots since the time it was put on the Internet. :o
@clacke I wonder how many more of these kinds of massive data leaks exist out there on open ports, just waiting for somebody to stumble over them.
I always try to imagine the guy responsible for this storage, who reads about all the hacks and leaks everywhere at Spotify, Google+, Equifax, and then goes back to work on his unencrypted public NAS with medical calls recordings thinking "Yeah, yeah, just another day at work". I'm trying to imagine it, but I just never quite get it.
