Engadget: Prison video visitation system exposed calls between inmates and lawyers

Engadget: Prison video visitation system exposed calls between inmates and lawyers. “Prison video visitation systems are sometimes the only way family and lawyers can talk to inmates, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the security of those systems recently suffered a major lapse. Researcher Bob Diachenko told TechCrunch that video visitation provider HomeWAV left a database dashboard publicly accessible without a password since April, exposing ‘thousands’ of calls between inmates and their attorneys. Anyone could read call logs and transcripts.”
