Now THIS is unusual! But it is a huge security and privacy leak nonetheless.
More than 400,000 audio files associated with a Florida company’s telemarketing efforts were stored online in the clear, and were discovered earlier this month by researchers at MacKeeper. More than 17,600 of those audio recordings were customer transactions that included names, addresses, and credit card and CVV information of those called.
28 gigabytes of recordings stored on a server belonging to Vici Marketing. The server was fully accessible on the Internet with no security at all, not even a simple password. Anyone on the Internet who know the URL (address) could listen to the audio and see the credit card information.
“There is enough information in each call to provide cyber criminals with all they need to steal the credit card information or commit a wide range of crimes,” wrote MacKeeper researchers in a blog post at https://mackeeper.com/blog/post/326-telemarketing-company-leaks-400k-of-sensitive-files
