Whisper left users’ details exposed in an open database for years

Whisper, an anonymous secret-sharing mobile app, has inadvertently been exposing information about its users for years. According to a media report, Whisper kept a non-password-protected database that allowed anyone to freely browse its records. Those records included users’ age, hometown, and membership in groups, which were mostly about sexual confessions and sexual orientation discussions.
