Clearview AI Source Code, Facial Recognition Apps, Data Exposed

“Clearview AI’s cloud data buckets were left vulnerable, and unfortunately, these oversights caused their facial recognition apps and private data to be left open on the internet for anyone to access,” said James Carder, chief security officer and vice president, who noted the exposure is a result of “bad IT practice with lax security controls” that didn’t provide for monitoring and alerting. “Additionally, thousands of videos from a residential building were left open on the server, a violation of privacy and potential danger to those on camera.”
