WIRED - June 15 - Security researchers Noam Rotem and Ran Locar were scanning the open Internet on May 24 when they stumbled upon a collection of publicly accessible Amazon Web Services "buckets." Each contained data from a different niche dating app, including 3somes, Cougary, Gay Daddy Bear, Xpal, BBW Dating, Casualx, SugarD, Herpes Dating, and GHunt. In all, the researchers found 845 gigabytes and close to 2.5M records, likely representing data from hundreds of thousands of users. The information was particularly sensitive and included sexually explicit photos and audio recordings. WIRED reached out to 3somes and Herpes Dating and attempted to reach Cheng Du New Tech Zone, but did not receive a reply. This was not a hack; it was sloppily stored data.
