Cab Firm Addresses 300,000+ Exposed Records

Data was exposed to public internet and has since been removed. 

An exposed database has been reported to iCabbi, a dispatch platform technology for taxi services and passengers.

The non-password-protected database contained 22,745 records and documents with the names, emails, phone numbers, and user IDs of nearly 300,000 customers based in the UK and Ireland.

Discovered by researcher Jeremiah Fowler, he admitted it is unclear how long the data was exposed, or if anyone else may have accessed the non-password-protected database.

Fowler reported the breach to iCabbi, who thanked Flower for notifying it, and said the records have been deleted.

An email read: “Human error to blame here unfortunately... part of a migration of customers but we should not be using public folders. We are going to engage with customers to make them aware of this breach”.
