Sega left a huge database of user information open to hackers

Sega Europe could easily have been the victim of a data breach, as security researchers recently discovered that the company had left confidential files stored insecurely in a publicly accessible database.

Researchers at security company VPN Overview found that the files in question were stored in a misconfigured Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 bucket. They were also able to obtain multiple sets of keys from AWS that gave them read and write access to Sega Europe cloud storage.
