Over 100 manufacturing companies leak confidential data: include Tesla, Toyota, Ford
Security experts at UpGuard, a network security company, reported that confidential data from more than 100 automakers were leaked, including General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, Tesla, Toyota, ThyssenKrupp, and Volkswagen. The source of the data leaks points to Level One Robotics, the standard service provider for these depots, involving 47,000 confidential documents.
The leaked data includes a series of confidential information such as product design charts, consumer invoice contract information, and work development plans of the car mentioned above the manufacturer’s detailed blueprint.
How did this car accident-like data leak occur? According to security analysts, the above server uses a standard file transfer protocol rsync for backing up large data sets. Since there is no security password protection, the user can access the private data without access. Any client connected to the rsync port has the right to download data.
On July 10th, Level One took the off-line offline method to cut off the path of the database leak temporarily.
