2.9 million records exposed by Blisk browser

The web-development browser Blisk suffered a data breach leaking more than 2.9 million records through an open Elasticsearch database that was left open and that bypassed the security put in place by its users. The browser has been compromised in a way that it now leaks the data it was designed to gather from web development teams, UX designers and web engineers, according to Noam Rotem and Ran Locar, leaders of VPNMentor’s security team, who uncovered the problem. Blisk has been operating since 2014 and VPNMentor said it has NASA, Microsoft, Apple, eBay and UNICEF as its customers and others from around the world.
