100,000 Affected in Border Checkpoint Breach
A subcontractor working with the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) suffered an intrusion that led to the exposure of a database containing the photos and vehicle numbers of up to 100,000 people. The images were collected at an unspecified CBP border checkpoint but stored at the subcontractor’s network without authorisation. The subcontractor had intended to use the database to refine the algorithm of its image recognition system. CBP’s systems are not affected in the incident as the breach is confined to the vendor’s network.
