Huge US data leak from Microsoft cloud; 65% of households at risk
Yet another cloud database with no #security. And this one’s enormous. This time, Microsoft was discovered hosting an 80 million-row, open database of US adults aged over 40. We still don’t know who owns the data, but some speculate shadow IT is to blame.
Obviously, Microsoft bears no responsibility whatsoever for this fantastic faux pas. The unprotected dataset is stuffed full of PII, and represents about 65% of US households.
Let that sink in for a moment: sixty-five percent.
