India’s largest truck brokerage and freight delivery company, FR8, is facing a serious data leak problem. According to the IT security researcher Anurag Sen working with Italian cyber security firm FlashStart, the organization has exposed more than 140 gigabytes of data, which is available to the public without any password or security authentication.
According to Hackread.com, the leaked data includes sensitive information such as customer records, invoices, and payment details across India. Not only that, but it also contains other personal information, such as names, addresses, and contact numbers of both customers and employees.
FR8 claims to be “India’s largest truck transport service company,” currently operating in over 60 cities across the country.
Anurag discovered the server on Shodan while searching for misconfigured cloud databases on January 30th, 2023. The researchers informed FR8 about the leak, but they did not receive any response. Their only contact email address available to the public is bouncing back all emails.
