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.

    I just want to share a link of an article where Evisort responded back on this data breach: https://www.artificiallawyer.com/2019/04/23/legal-ai-firm-evisort-responds-to-database-exposure-security-claims/
    where it is claiming that it was the part of internal development and database is not part of their production environment which they use for clients.
    
    Company is really doing a fantastic job in serving the clients but your article is affecting them bad. I would like to convey to visitors of company to consider them for Data security.
