A security hole on the Fox News web server Sunday exposed sensitive content to
the public, including login information that allowed hackers to access names,
phone numbers, and email addresses of at least 1.5 million people.
Wikinews.org has learned that an FTP server belonging to publishing company
Ziff-Davis could be accessed with a username and password found on the Fox News
site, with customer details among the internal data publicly available.
The FTP site, used for collaboration between different global aspects of
Ziff-Davis business, contains data ranging from expense sheets to resumes to
opt-out lists used by customers who wish to avoid receiving unsolicited emails.
Many of the compromised files make reference to Acxiom, a data management
company that in 2003 experienced a similar theft of personal information. It is
not believed that the files exposed by the Fox News oversight contain customer
Social Security numbers or bank accounts, however, as was the case in the 2003
breach. However, telephone and address details appear included in the data.
