Report: Data Breach at Fortune 500 Tech Company

Report: Data Breach at Fortune 500 Tech Company

The research team at vpnMentor discovered a major data leak at the Tech Data Corporation (NASDAQ: TECD), a Fortune 500 company providing tech products, services, and solutions globally.

vpnMentor’s researchers, led by security researchers Noam Rotem and Ran Locar, identified the consequential data breach that exposes access to 264GB of Tech Data’s client servers, invoices, SAP integrations, plain-text passwords, and much more.

Tech Data recently announced their quarterly earnings reports, which exceeded expectations and reflected a year over year increase (source: Nasdaq). More than 1 in 4 Fortune 500 companies have been hacked in the last decade, so Tech Data is part of an elite, but particularly vulnerable, club.
