Forty-nine million business contacts believed to belong to San Francisco–based data broker LimeLeads are being sold on a hacking forum, ZDNet reports. Security researcher Bob Diachenko said an internal Elasticsearch server was exposed since at least July 27, 2019. He notified LimeLeads Sept. 16, and the company secured the server the next day. The hacker has been selling the data, including user emails, addresses, company revenue and number of employees, since October 2019. Meanwhile, BankInfoSecurity reports thousands of baby videos and images have been unsecured and exposed online by mobile app Peekaboo Moments, and Bloomberg Opinion Columnist Elisa Martinuzzi writes losses from ransomware attacks are increasing even though the number of attacks is declining.
