Forbes Claims Huge WWE Leak Exposed Millions Of Fans' Personal Information

In this article on Forbes, the writer claims that the WWE had a huge unprotected database of information on over 3 million users and that it was easily searchable by anyone on the internet.

The data which can be found includes home addresses, e-mail addresses, birthdates, age ranges and genders. Apparently, all of this information was on an Amazon Web Services S3 server without any kind of username/password lock to protect the info.

WWE did respond and provide a statement to another website regarding the leak:

“Although no credit card or password information was included, and therefore not at risk, WWE is investigating a vulnerability of a database housed on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which has now been secured. WWE utilizes leading cybersecurity firms Smartronix and Praetorian to manage data infrastructure and cybersecurity and to conduct regular security audits on AWS.  We are currently working with Amazon Web Services, Smartronix and Praetorian to ensure the ongoing security of our customer information.”
