Security Flaw Found in Pan American Games Site
Journalists' names, pictures, addresses and passport numbers may have been exposed.
According to the Winnipeg Free Press, a significant security vulnerability was recently found in the official Web site for the Pan American Games being held in Guadalajara, Mexico.
"The weakness seems to make accessible the personal information of all the journalists that cover the event," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.
"All of the 1400 journalists that cover the event could fall victims to identity theft as a result of a potential data breach as the information hosted on the website contains names, pictures, addresses and passport numbers," Kovacs writes.
