Influencers Fall Victim to Misconfigured AWS Storage Buckets

Recently, an AWS S3 cloud storage bucket became misconfigured and revealed the personal information of hundreds of influencers. Experts at vpnMentor found the open storage bucket that was compromised was linked to 21 Buttons, a social network centered around fashion. Large influencers use this app to share their outfits and connect users with e-commerce stores. It’s reported that over 50 million files were exposed during the breach, which ranged from photos and videos to invoices with personally identifiable information (PII). The PII from influencers included bank information, national ID numbers, sales commission data, and more. If this information gets into the wrong hands, it could expose influencers to cyber crimes like phishing scams and identity theft. The PII was accessible to the public for over six weeks before it was secured again.
