i see this kind of 'reactive before proactive' behavior a lot in the realm of corporate IT. why bother investing in security when we can just say "oops" when we make an obvious blunder? the sad irony of this is that the platform they used, Amazon Web Services, actually has services that crawl your infrastructure searching for unsecured endpoints and open storage containers. id love to see more tangible penalties for big tech firms like this not doing their due diligence to safeguard the data of their customers. this is a bonehead mistake from a tech leader worth millions. ive been in this industry for a solid 5 months and even i can remark on how oblivious you have to be to let idiocy like this slip into your corporate infrastructure.
