MoviePass data breach leaves credit card numbers open

Post by IceCube » Wed Sep 04, 2019 5:26 pm

Movie ticket subscription service MoviePass is the latest company to suffer a data breach after tens of thousands of customer card numbers and personal credit cards were left unsecured on a server that was not password protected.

The exposed database was discovered by SpiderSilk security researcher Mossab Hussein who found it on one of the company's many subdomains. The database itself is massive and contains over 161m records including some pertaining to the service's daily operations as well as sensitive user information such as MoviePass customer card numbers.

MoviePass issues cards to its customers that are similar to normal debit cards and are issued by MasterCard. These cards contain a cash balance and the company deposits funds onto them which customers then use to pay to see movies.
