Alteryx data leak exposes 123 million households: What you need to know

Authored by a Symantec employee


More than 120 million U.S. households had information exposed in a data leak, potentially raising the risk of identity theft for the impacted American families.

Here’s what happened:

Cybersecurity company Upguard said it discovered the exposed data on Oct. 6, 2017, in a cloud-based repository, and made its discovery public on Dec. 19, 2017.

The repository that was exposed contained a range of U.S. household data from Alteryx, an Irvine, California-based marketing and data analytics company.

Alteryx’s data sets appeared to belong to Experian, a credit reporting agency.

I would think that both companies, Experian and Alteryx's should have been checking to avoid these "FU-BAR" moments.

Upguard alerted Alteryx about the exposed data sets, and Alteryx secured the database last week, according to a Forbes article.

What household data was exposed?
