The Register: Dow Jones index – of customers, not prices – leaks from AWS repo

The Register: Dow Jones index – of customers, not prices – leaks from AWS repo. “It’s an all-too-familiar, straightforward breach: someone left a cloud repository configured to offer ‘semi-public access’, meaning ‘the sensitive personal and financial details of millions of the company’s customers’ was exposed…. The repo was an AWS S3 bucket with the wrong privacy settings: by configuring it to allow access to authenticated users, whoever set it up didn’t seem to realise they were offering access to any authenticated AWS user – not just those with Dow Jones-associated accounts).” That’s not a straightfoward breach, that’s a straightforward leak.
