Researchers discovered a misconfigured Amazon AWS S3 bucket that was left publically available. The breach has exposed information about their customers and re-seller network and also the physical device that is attached to the cars.
The repository contained over a half of a million records with logins / passwords, emails, VIN (vehicle identification number), IMEI numbers of GPS devices and other data that is collected on their devices, customers and auto dealerships. Interestingly, exposed database also contained information where exactly in the car the tracking unit was hidden.
The “SVR” stands for ‘stolen vehicle records”.
The software monitors everywhere the car has been back as far as 120 days, including a terrifying feature that pinpoints on the map all of the places a driver has visited. There is even an option that will show anyone with login credentials the top stops or locations where the vehicle has been. There is a “recovery mode” that can pinpoint every 2 min or create zone notifications. They claim to have a 99% success rate on recovery but what about when the customer logins and passwords for thousands of unsuspecting drivers are leaked online?
