HONDA, UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP EXPOSE SENSITIVE DATA IN MISCONFIG BLUNDERS

Server and cloud misconfigs continue to plague companies and their customers: This week it came to light that a Universal Music Group contractor neglected to protect an Apache Airflow server, leaving data exposed; while a Honda affiliate in India left two Amazon S3 buckets misconfigured for more than a year.

The Honda mistake affects 50,000 users of the Honda Connect App, which is used to manage automobile service and maintenance. It can also pair with the car to offer vehicle health monitoring, “find my car” capability, trip analysis and an SOS function for emergencies.
