Cloud leak revealed sensitive data from over 200,000 voicemail messages
Some data leaks contain more sensitive information than most. Security researcher Bob Diachenko and Comparitech discovered (via Threat post) that Broadvoice, a cloud-based VoIP provider for businesses, left over 350 million recordings exposed online in an unprotected cluster, including 2 million voicemail recordings with 200,000 transcriptions. Many of those transcripts included sensitive data, not just common things like names and phone numbers – medical conditions, mortgages, and insurance policies were all left open.
The largest collection of general data, 275 million records, typically included full names, phone numbers, and cities.
