E3 leaks data of thousands of journalists

Posted on Tuesday, August 06 2019 @ 11:03:45 CEST by


The Entertainment Software Association messed up and accidentally leaked the personal contact details of around 2,000 journalists, content creators, and industry professionals. A vulnerability on the website of ESA resulted in the contact list of registered journalists attending E3 being made public. ESA says it regrets the occurrence and promises it put measures in place to ensure it will not occur again.
The ESA has issued a statement saying that the leaked file was located on a password-protected section of the E3 website that was intended only for exhibitors. "As soon as we learned of this issue, we took immediate action. We removed the file from the website, we disabled access to the site’s exhibitor portal, and we notified those affected. In addition, we launched a process to locate and remove private and public caches and other publicly-accessible online locations that contained the file," an ESA rep said.
The leak sparks a lot of concern, with some arguing it may be the final nail in the coffin of the E3 show. The show is no longer what it used to be, with attention shifting to smaller, and different events. This has been a problem for major tech shows for many years now, there were a lot of these events in the past but not a lot are still left. More details at PC Gamer.
