TechCrunch: 1-877-KARS4KIDS had a data breach

TechCrunch: 1-877-KARS4KIDS had a data breach. “The New Jersey-based charity has plagued the American airwaves for years with the ‘most hated’ jingle to try to get consumers to trade in their car — for the kids! In return, you get to write-off the donation from your taxes, and you’re given a ‘holiday voucher’ to sweeten the deal. But a security lapse left thousands of those donation records exposed for anyone to find.” Since the information was just left on an open server, I think this is more of a leak than a breach.
