A researcher discovered an unprotected database storing the details of 198,000 users who had signed up for a now-defunct iOS application. A misconfigured MongoDB database associated with the iPhone app Kinotopic was discovered by Chris Vickery, a researcher who currently works at Kromtech, the company behind MacKeeper.
Kinotopic, which allowed users to create and share animated pictures and cinemagraphs, was discontinued sometime in 2013. However, the database storing the accounts of people who used the app has not been deleted.
