Personal Health Insurance Data Found on Public AWS server

22/09/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


A treasure trove of personal information on around 1.5 million US insurance claimants has been discovered in clear text on a publicly available Amazon Web Services subdomain.

The data was discovered by a “technology enthusiast” and includes names, social security numbers, addresses, dates of birth, and financial and medical injury data.

Just over one million entries relate to the Kansas State Self Insurance Fund, while a further three million payment details dating back to 1987 are linked to the CSAC Excess Insurance Authority (CSAC-EIA), according to

The CSAC-EIA data is also said to include 4.7 million separate “notes” about claims, while thousands of scanned PDFs – most likely of insurance claims forms – are likely to come from the Golden State Risk Management Authority.

Other databases exposed include those with data from the American All-Risk Loss Administrators (AARLA)/Risico, Millers Mutual Group, and Crosswalk Claims Management, the report claimed.

The Amazon subdomain appears to have been run by US claims management firm Systema Software

The contractor is said to have notified all those affected and the database was taken down shortly after it was informed of the exposure.
