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 Databreaches.net.

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.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
