Names, address, account details and personal identification numbers for as many as 14 million Verizon customers were publicly accessible and unsecured in June because of a third-party cloud server problem, according to a new report.
Chris Vickery, of Upguard, reported the breach after he discovered a database of Verizon customers on a cloud server account of a Verizon subcontractor in a way that could be accessed by anyone who knew where to look for it.
The cloud account, administered by the Israeli firm NICE Systems, hosted what appeared to be a daily log of Verizon accounts, Upguard reported.
