Two Unsecured Databases Expose Personal Data, Medical Records
A blood bank in India is leaking the personal information of 1.1 million blood donors after failing to secure an open directory containing donor’s personally identifiable information. Similarly, a clinic in India fails to secure an Amazon S3 bucket, exposing more than 10,000 medical records such as prescription notes and medical diagnosis. Both databases remain accessible via the internet without the need for authentication as the affected organisations have failed to implement suitable access controls despite multiple data leak notifications.
