ZDNet reports a hacking forum has exposed the personal data of 24.3 million users of the cloud-based service Lumin PDF. Hackers made the data public after allegedly reaching out to Lumin PDF multiple times in recent months. Users' names, email addresses, genders, language settings and hashed password strings or Google access tokens were all part of the exposed data. "The unprotected database was found about [five] months ago," the hacker wrote. "Vendor was contacted multiple times, but ignored all the queries. ... The data was later destroyed by ransomware, and server taken down soon after." Meanwhile, Forbes reports a vulnerability within Google Calendar's settings could risk the privacy of 1 billion users.
