Our biggest discovery to date was found in Jan 2019 and contained millions of sensitive files including home loan applications, credit reports, bankruptcy records, and more. It was covered by hundreds of media outlets and was reported as one of the biggest discoveries since the Equifax 2017 data breach exposed the sensitive personal information of 143 million people.
TechCrunch is a leading technology media property, dedicated to obsessively profiling startups, reviewing new Internet products, and breaking tech news. It is safe to say that they are the leading authority on tech and startup culture. Our discovery was the top story of the day and would not have been possible with out the help of Zack Whittaker the security editor at TechCrunch.
