05 Sep Spy App Maker Leaks Sensitive Data For 2nd Time in 3 Years
Security researcher Nitish Shah revealed to fellow expert Brian Krebs last week a huge leak of sensitive data from a company called mSpy.
The company, which makes spy software for consumers, left a database containing passwords, call logs, text messages, contacts, notes and location data collected from devices running the spyware, as well as other sensitive information, without any authentication.
The company had apparently ignored Shah’s messages about the issue, and only responded after Krebs alerted them again last August 30. mSpy said that they had already taken the info offline, but it was noted that the company has not taken sufficient security measures after a hacker had hit it in 2015.
