A Silicon Valley venture capital firm that runs a matchmaking service linking investors with startups exposed 6GB of data, including deal flow information pertaining to investors and startups.
The data belongs to Plug and Play Ventures, which is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, and has offices around the world. Plug and Play helps startups get off the ground and matches those companies with investors. The firm says it has benefited from early investments in PayPal and Dropbox.
The leaked data appears to be a PostgreSQL database for Playbook.vc, a networking and deal flow application from Plug and Play.
