A massive trove of highly critical data of Swedish citizens leaked online - Via - HACKREAD

SecurityYo' Greetings Citizens,

A massive trove of highly critical data of Swedish citizens leaked online - Via - HACKREAD

Privacy of Swedish citizens is at risk as a massive trove of data belonging to Swedish Transport Agency (STA) (Transportstyrelsen) was mistakenly uploaded on a cloud server. The data contained personal and vehicle information of almost every citizen in the country including the military and police officials.


According to Swedish Newspaper report, the breach took place in September 2015 when STA outsourced its IT services including database management to IBM’s subcontractors in the Czech Republic, Romania, and Serbia who had access to the data without any security clearance.

It was only in March 2016 when Swedish Secret Service found out that the data was uploaded to an unprotected cloud server. The investigation revealed that the breach exposed names, addresses, and pictures of millions of citizens, details about people listed in police registers, details of government military vehicles, driver’s license records of fighter pilots of Swedish air force, personal details of military members in secret units and data on critical infrastructure in Sweden including roads and bridges...++..

Rich Campagna, CEO of Bitglass commented on the issue and said that: “Unlike breaches where malicious users target vulnerable systems, this leak of personally identifiable information was the result of carelessness. Unrestricted access to personally identifiable information and limited recourse in terms of recovering that data are both serious gaps in security.”

The Swedish government and security agencies are still looking into the matter. While Mr.Stefan Löfven, Swedish Prime Minister is expected to address the issue today for the very first time. However, at the time of publishing this article, the Swedish media reports claimed that the data is still in the hands of foreign companies and what’s worse is that all the data is in clear text.

Thank You For Your Time, Citizens. I hope that you have a great and cyber-secure day!

Thank You Citizen,
The Administration
