Cloud database removed after exposing details on 80 million US households

first_img Security Internet A database with info on 80M+ US households was left open… Hacking Privacy Microsoft Now playing: Watch this: 1:48 11 Tags Comments Unlike a hack, you don’t need to break into a computer system to access an exposed database. You simply need to find the IP address, the numerical code assigned to any given web page. There’s no indication, though, that the information in this database was accessed by cybercriminals.For the research, Rotem and Locar partnered with VPNmentor, an Israeli company that reviews privacy products called VPNs and receives commissions when readers choose one they like. In a blog post Monday, the company called on the public to help it identify who might own the data so that it can be secured.”The 80 million families listed here deserve privacy,” the company said in its blog post.Rotem found that the data was stored on a cloud service owned by Microsoft. Securing the data is up to the organization that created the database, and not Microsoft itself.”We have notified the owner of the database and are taking appropriate steps to help the customer remove the data until it can be properly secured,” a Microsoft spokesperson told CNET in a statement Monday.The server hosting the data came online in February, Rotem found, and he discovered it in April using tools he developed to search for and catalog unsecured databases. In January, he also found a security flaw in a widely used airline booking system called Amadeus that could allow an attacker to view and alter airline bookings.The cache of demographic information included data about adults aged 40 and older. Many people listed are elderly, which Rotem said could put them at risk from scammers tempted to use the information to try to defraud them.Originally published April 29, 5 a.m. PT.Update, 11:15 a.m.: Adds comment from Microsoft and more information about the cybersecurity research team. Update, 12:12 p.m.: Notes that the database has been taken offline. Angela Lang/CNET In a blow to consumers’ privacy, the addresses and demographic details of more than 80 million US households were exposed on an unsecured database stored on the cloud, independent security researchers have found.The details included names, ages and genders as well as income levels and marital status. The researchers, led by Noam Rotem and Ran Locar, were unable to identify the owner of the database, which until Monday was online and required no password to access. Some of the information was coded, like gender, marital status and income level. Names, ages and addresses were not coded.The data didn’t include payment information or Social Security numbers. The 80 million households affected make up well over half of the households in the US, according to Statista.”I wouldn’t like my data to be exposed like this,” Rotem said in an interview with CNET. “It should not be there.”Rotem and his team verified the accuracy of some data in the cache but didn’t download the data to minimize the invasion of privacy of those listed, he said.It’s one more example of a widespread problem with cloud data storage, which has revolutionized how we store valuable information. Many organizations don’t have the expertise to secure the data they keep on internet-connected servers, resulting in repeated exposures of sensitive data. Earlier in April, a researcher revealed that patient information from drug addiction treatment centers was exposed on an unsecured database. Another researcher found a giant cache of Facebook user data stored by third-party companies on another database that was publicly visible. I wouldn’t like my data to be exposed like this. It should not be there. Noam Rotem, security researcher Share your voicelast_img read more

Cycling can reduce your loneliness boost mental health

first_imgFeeling lonely? Riding your bicycles may not only improve your general and mental health, but also increase social interaction, says a study.The study showed that cycling is the healthiest mode of transport and is associated with better self-perceived general health, better mental health, greater vitality, lower self-perceived stress and fewer feelings of loneliness.”The findings suggest that active transport – especially cycling – should be encouraged in order to improve health and increase social interaction,” said lead author Avila Palencia from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) in Barcelona, Spain. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe second most beneficial transport mode, walking, was associated with good self-perceived general health, greater vitality, and more contact with friends and/or family.”Ours is the first study to associate the use of multiple urban transport modes with health effects such as mental health and social contact. It also allowed us to highlight the positive effect of walking, which in previous studies was not very conclusive,” she added.The study, published in the journal Environment International, was carried out in seven European cities: Antwerp, Barcelona, London, Orebro, Rome, Vienna and Zurich and included more than 8,800 people. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe transport modes assessed in the study were car, motorbike, public transport, bicycle, electric bicycle and walking.Driving and public-transport use were associated with poor self-perceived general health, while cars were linked with fewer feelings of loneliness.”This result is most likely due to the fact that the study population drove very infrequently and most journeys by car were probably for social purposes, such as visiting a family member or a friend,” the researchers explained.The study stressed on the need for “an integrated approach to urban planning, transport planning and public health is needed in order to developpolicies that promote active transport, such as adding more segregated cycle lanes for a better environment for cyclists,” the researchers noted.last_img read more
