Music industry security has taken a beating recently, and today I'm adding another log to the fire: Earbits, an independent internet radio outlet, was recently leaking the private account details of over 325,000 users.Followers of data plug news will recollection the early december cut of music sales site Tunecore as well as more recent coverage of a SQL injection attack against a band known as Faithless.But unlike the Tunecore and Faithless incidents, this Earbits situation does not involve a hack at all. i discovered the 325k user database through a regular review of search results on the site Shodan.io. The Earbits database was not using any authentication measures. It was completely exposed and available to anyone in the entire world with an internet connection.We're talking about everything from real names, email addresses, and SHA1 password hashes (with accompanying salts), to the secret access keys of Earbits' Amazon S3 account.
