Zorro (Slashdot reader #15,797) shares their report: The bizarre turn of events stems from a decision by a Navy prosecutor to embed hidden tracking software into emails sent to defense attorneys, including one Air Force lawyer, involved in a high-profile war-crimes case of a Navy SEAL in San Diego.

I’m a day and a half behind with this week’s update again – sorry! Thursday and Friday were solid with training in Melbourne so I recorded Saturday and am pushing this out in the early hours of Sunday before going wakeboarding – is that work / life balance? But there’s been a hell of a lot going on, particularly around HIBP and I’ll be talking a lot more about that in the weeks to come.

First American Financial Corp is a Fortune 500 company that insures titles on peoples’ property; their insecure website exposed 885,000,000 records for property titles, going back 16 years, including bank accounts (with scanned statements), Social Security numbers, wire transaction receipts, scanned drivers’ licenses, tax records, mortgage records, etc — when notified of the error, the company (which employs 18,000 people and grossed more than $5.7B last year) closed the misconfiguration.
Santa Ana, Calif.-based First American is a leading provider of title insurance and settlement services to the real estate and mortgage industries. It employs some 18,000 people and brought in more than $5.7 billion in 2018. Earlier this week, KrebsOnSecurity was contacted by a real estate developer in Washington state who said he’d had little luck getting a response from the company about what he found, which was that a portion of its Web site (firstam.com) was leaking tens if not hundreds of millions of records. He said anyone who knew the URL for a valid document at the Web site could view other documents just by modifying a single digit in the link. And this would potentially include anyone who’s ever been sent a document link via email by First American. KrebsOnSecurity confirmed the real estate developer’s findings, which indicate that First American’s Web site exposed approximately 885 million files, the earliest dating back more than 16 years. No authentication was required to read the documents.

In a recent study, one-third of customers that were notified of a vendor breach said they would no longer do business with that company. With cybersecurity, the best medicine is preventative – companies need to protect against cybercrime and data breaches before they happen.
