Some companies just make it far too easy for criminals to scoop up their data.
Take WWE, for instance. The professional wrestling entertainment company has just been caught with its spandex leotard down, after a security researcher discovered a plaintext database containing the details of more than three million wrestling fans on an unprotected Amazon Web Services S3 server.
The information, which included fans’ home addresses, email addresses, ethnicity, earnings, educational background, and the gender and age range of children was simply left on a publicly accessible server, with no requirement for a password or username.
