It’s time to think different about your Contracting and Financial workflow...

A dark web researchers Bob Diachenko and Vinny Troia found a trove of data sitting exposed and easily accessible on an unsecured server – about 1.2 billion records in all – containing profiles of hundreds of millions of people that include phone numbers and social media profiles – reported by techstartups.com.

The data comprises 4 terabytes of personal information – about 1.2 billion records in all. A total count of unique people across all data sets reached more than 1.2 billion people, making this one of the largest data leaks from a single source organization in history. The leaked data contained names, email addresses, phone numbers, LinkedIN and Facebook profile information. What makes this data leak unique is that it contains data sets that appear to originate from 2 different data enrichment companies.

“This is the first time I’ve seen all these social media profiles collected and merged with user profile information into a single database on this scale,” Troia says.
