I'm sorry to the PC people but if that's a woman them I'm blind. I've seen other pictures of this "woman". That is a man face. I want to see a birth certificate.

Sadly, one "woman" can breach 106 million peoples data!

I never expected this to be done by one person. This time it is done by someone who identifies as a female.

I wonder if Amazon got breached to as the "woman" worked for Amazon.
One person is all it takes to find a computing security flaw, especially when the security is sloppy. (As it was, for example, with the Equifax data breach.) If we want this stuff to end, we would need to ban mass customer data collection.

To me it sounds like they may have been storing PII on Amazon cloud servers. A dubious practice at best. Hopefully we'll hear more.

Apparently, some people think it is more acceptable for their info to be hacked by a person with testicles.

Me, I'd prefer that my data not be hacked at all. I guess I'm peculiar that way.

The security was sloppy in this case, too. Misconfigured firewall, and why in the hell were the personal data files not encrypted? Especially if they're in the cloud? Really?

I advised a CPA friend who wasn't very tech savvy but was all excited about uploading all their clients' files to "the cloud" so any associate could access clients' files regardless of which branch or client location they were in at the time when this was all pretty new around 2010 that if they're going to do that, at the VERY least, password protect the files, encrypt the password, AND encrypt the files, or they'd be liable for any public exposure of sensitive personal/corporate data.

With a misconfigured firewall. Yikes.

That has the set-up for a low-budget comedy movie!

Most hacks are not sophisticated. They are done by opportunistic people who have obtained passwords and know things about certain companies technical infrastructures.

I thought what a bizarre looking person, like a corpse. Probably complete night owl and gets very little sleep or nutrition. Then I read where shes a trans. Another disturbed person.

Depending on how many people file a claim for the Equafax class action lawsuit, you might end with a quarter.

In order for you to get the $125, 248,000 people or less need to file a claim. If 1 million people ask for the money, theyll be eligible for just $31 each. If every single one of the 147 million affected people sign up, theyll be looking at 21 cents each!

You must be joking. He is very clearly a male.

Edit: In fact, let me help you with that:
