Account data for more than half a million car tracking devices was leaked online

Login data for more than half a million records tied to vehicle tracking device company SVR Tracking have leaked online, potentially exposing the personal and vehicle data of drivers and businesses using its service.   The leaked repository was first spotted by the Kromtech Security Center, which blamed a misconfigured Amazon AWS S3 bucket that was left publicly accessible for an unknown period of time for the breach.
