More than 11,000 identity documents from models and sex workers for the adult website SextPanther were reportedly in one TechCrunch on Friday.. Passports, driver’s licenses, and social security numbers used to verify the age of the models were stored in an Amazon Web Services non-password-protected storage bucket, according to a report
“Our security and legal teams are still investigating,” a company representative told CNET in a Twitter message. “But at this point there is no evidence [SextPanther] Data that is being accessed except for the security company, which found the exploit and notified the media. The vulnerability was fixed within an hour of being notified. As soon as we have more information, we will make it available directly to the affected models. “
The operator of the website, Alexander Guizzetti, did not confirm that the AWS storage bucket belonged to SextPanther, TechCrunch reported. The storage bucket is no longer online.
