TeenSafe Leaks Emails And Passwords…. Oh My

TeenSafe which bills itself as a way for parents to securely monitor their kids turns out it isn’t secure. I say that because it has leaked thousands of Apple IDs and the plain text passwords of accounts. ZDNet has all the details:

But the Los Angeles, Calif.-based company left its servers, hosted on Amazon’s cloud, unprotected and accessible by anyone without a password.

Robert Wiggins, a UK-based security researcher who searches for public and exposed data, found two leaky servers.

Both of the servers was pulled offline after ZDNet alerted the company, including another that contains what appears to be only test data.

“We have taken action to close one of our servers to the public and begun alerting customers that could potentially be impacted,” said a TeenSafe spokesperson told ZDNet on Sunday.

Oops. That’s a #Fail. One wonders if they have other servers in the same state. In fact, I would suggest that this company is trying to find out as I type this. Because you can bet that hackers are trying to find out what state their servers are in as I type this.
