Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
@Ryan: Well, they already have, as we've started to see. Whether it's enough, however, remains to be seen.

Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
@Dr T. "Secure VPC's"

My assumption is that amazon does this by default and then customers, unfortunately, reduce the security parameters. Based on earlier discussion on brand reputation I would be surprised if Amazon made customers pay more for a secure deployment.

Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
@Joe. That's a great point. Question is, what is the catalyst to start Amazon on the path of completely locking down their UI/UX from a hardening perspective? Is this exposure enough to facilitate a change?

Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
Anytime Amazon sees its name in the news articles about data breaches -- even if it's "not their fault" -- it's brand damaging. That is a good point and true. Nobody wants to be in the news because of breaches.

Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
Ultimately, the fault lies with the users/customers That would be the case, if system is breached because data is not encrypted at rest it, consumers and argue with that.

Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
Amazon, by default, should be deploying secure VPC's. I think Amazon already provides that, it may cost the consumer tough.

Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
Can someone elaborate as to if this was a fault of amazon or the company leveraging those services? That is the question in the cloud, it depends on the cloud service provider I guess

Public data
It can be public data but if protected and accessed by hackers that would still constitute a breach and should be avoided

Re: Incorrectly Configured S3 Bucket
@Ryan: Since an outbreak of high-profile breaches due to misconfigured S3 buckets, Amazon has made some efforts to make things easier to configure and more transparent/visible. Ultimately, the fault lies with the users/customers -- but Amazon does bear some responsibility from a UI/UX perspective, no doubt. Anytime Amazon sees its name in the news articles about data breaches -- even if it's "not their fault" -- it's brand damaging.
