Phil Muncaster reports: A US-based used electronics retailer has exposed over 2.6 million files, including ID cards and biometric images, after a misconfigured AWS S3 bucket was discovered. Researchers at Website planet traced the instance rear to California-based TronicsXchange, previously trading as GreenElectronicsExchange (GEEx). A random scan for server vulnerabilities led to the find of the wide surface S3 bucket on October 12 2020. The companion itself appeared to live shuttered, with an invalid impinging email and its website offline, but Website planet contacted AWS two days later and the publication was eventually remediated. scan more on InfoSecurity.
