A massive data leak exposed millions of sensitive files, including records of FBI investigations, emails and bank transaction histories.
Three terabytes of unprotected data from the Oklahoma Securities Commission was available to anyone with the internet because they contained no passwords, Forbes reports.
“It represents a compromise of the entire integrity of the Oklahoma department of securities’ network,” said Chris Vickery, head of research at UpGuard, which discovered the leak. “It affects an entire state level agency. … It’s massively noteworthy.”
Vickery said “all sorts of archive enforcement actions” from the FBI were exposed.
Included was detailed information on subjects and witnesses of FBI investigations over the past seven years.
