Six million of Verizon’s US customers had their personal and account information exposed, including PIN numbers.
Verizon Communications suffered a major data leak due to a misconfigured cloud server that exposed data on 6 million of its customers.
The leak was the result of its third-party provider NICE Systems incorrectly configuring Verizon’s cloud-based file repository housed in an Amazon Web Services S3 bucket on NICE’s cloud server, according to UpGuard, which issued a report on the breach today. Verizon customer names, addresses, account information, including account personal identification numbers (PINs), were compromised.
