2.7 million medical calls breached in Sweden
The calls were stored on a NAS connected to the internet with no authentication or encryption, with people's phone numbers in the file names of audio files
@Gargron wtf?! It's kind of incredible this intrusion didn't happen immediately after the data was put online.
It's also not quite correct for them to call this a breach when they put the files out there for anyone to see and take with zero controls what so ever. 🙄
I always try to imagine the guy responsible for this storage, who reads about all the hacks and leaks everywhere at Spotify, Google+, Equifax, and then goes back to work on his unencrypted public NAS with medical calls recordings thinking "Yeah, yeah, just another day at work". I'm trying to imagine it, but I just never quite get it.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
