Information tillhörande drygt åtta miljoner kunder som handlat av Amazon, eBay, Shopify, PayPal och Stripe har hittats i en oskyddad databas som låg öppen ute på nätet i fler dagar.

I den information som hittats finns namn, adress, telefonnummer och de produkter som har köpts. Databasen har hittats på en av Amazon Web Services (AWS) och en större del av uppgifterna tillhör brittiska kunder. Resterande uppgifter tillhör kunder i andra europeiska länder.

Discovered by Comparitech’s noted breach hunter Bob Diachenko, the AWS instance containing the MongoDB database became visible on 3 February, where it remained indexable by search engines for five days.

Data in the records included names, shipping addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, items purchased, payments, order IDs, links to Stripe and Shopify invoices, and partially redacted credit cards.

Also included were thousands of Amazon Marketplace Web Services (MWS) queries, an MWS authentication token, and an AWS access key ID.

Naked Security

Enligt uppgifter så kommer informationen från en tredjeparts app som samlat in data om kunderna och deras köp.

“We were made aware of an issue with a third party developer (who works with a number of Amazon sellers), who appears to have held a database containing information from several different companies, including Amazon. The database was available on the internet for a very short period of time. As soon as we were made aware, we ensured the third party developer took immediate action to remove the database and secure the data. The security of Amazon’s systems was not compromised in any way.”
