Mexican Voter Database Exposed
 

Another point I would like to make is that sometimes we take one problem and make it very big, this simply be a case that somebody copy/paste the data from Amazon to other systems and that is how it is being exposed. So the vulnerability would be the human mainly not the system.

Re: Security Shortcoming
"... Developers or administrators may be new to the technology and may not fully understand how to deploy it securely. ..."

This is an important point I think. We know some of the EC2 outages were because of misconfiguration, they may result into security vulnerabilities too.

I mostly agree but there is always a fine line that overall system not having enough security measures (such as layered) and it is hard to pinpoint.

Re: Security Shortcoming
"... Whose involvement lead to the insecure configuration ..."

Good question, if we could find the answer of this I would say we would find a response to it but most likely both in my view.

Voter database private?
I am wondering what private information there would be in a voter database? Name and address? If yes, I would not believe we still consider name and address private.

Re: Security Shortcoming
Hard to say, but I would suggest it lands on the entity using the service. Exposure of NoSQL databases has been somewhat common recenlty, this is likely an awareness problem. Developers or administrators may be new to the technology and may not fully understand how to deploy it securely. I've publised an open source database assesment tool to try help prevent situations like this (Github link in my profile).

Security Shortcoming
Would this security shortcoming fall under a blunder of Amazon's or by the entity using their service? Whose involvement lead to the insecure configuration?
