Microsoft admits to leaking data of 38 million people, including records of restaurants

The American company, “Microsoft”, admitted leaking the data of 38 million people registered with it, including the records of those vaccinated with vaccines for the emerging coronavirus, which causes “Covid-19” disease.

A report published on the specialized technical Engadget website indicated that this major breach of Microsoft’s systems was made through the “Power Apps” web applications of the American company.

Researchers said that this large-scale security breach included data for contact tracing efforts associated with the Corona virus, vaccine records, and employee databases.

That data included people’s home addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers, and vaccinations.

These leaked data also included the data of a large number of large companies and institutions, such as American Airlines, Ford, the Indiana Department of Health, and public schools in New York.

PowerApps were intended to make it easier for customers to create their own web and mobile applications, and provided APIs for developers to use with the data they collected, but they were exploited by hackers to compromise confidential data and information.

“Our products provide customers with flexibility and privacy features to design scalable solutions that meet a variety of needs,” Microsoft said in response to those reports.

“We take security and privacy seriously, and encourage our customers to use best practices when configuring products in ways that best meet privacy needs.”

She explained that these applications will maintain data privacy by default in the future, when developers use APIs, in addition to that, the company has also released a tool for developers to check their settings.

The researchers also warned that the exposed and most sensitive data included 332,000 email addresses and the same Microsoft employee IDs used in their payroll, in addition to 39,000 highly confidential records from within Microsoft.
