TechCrunch reports on a data leak that affected document and contract management company Evisort. The startup left its database open without a password, allowing anyone to search the files inside. The number of affected parties is unknown, but the exposed files contained customer data on stored documents such as employee contracts, loan agreements and resumes. “The database is not part of our production environment, but a part of our internal development environment used by our engineers,” Evisort CEO Jerry Ting said. "Although our investigation is ongoing, the vast majority of information contained in the development database was placeholder or benign information used for testing purposes. However, it appears that there may be a small number [of] legitimate documents in this environment." Editor’s Note: CORRECTION: An original version of this news summary mistakenly stated that Evisort shut down following the breach. Evisort has not shut down and is fully up and running.
