Postal Service Site Exposed Data of 60 Million Users
USPS Says the Glitch has Been Corrected
(AP) – The US Postal Service says it’s fixed a security flaw on its website which may have exposed the personal information of more than 60 million customers.
The flaw affected usps.com and allowed anyone to see, and even possibly change, the personal account information of its users.
According to ‘Krebs on Security’, an anonymous researcher says he told USPS about the flaw more than a year ago, but never received a response.
A writer from the cybersecurity blog says he contacted USPS, which promptly addressed the issue.
The USPS says the glitch has been corrected.
The Postal Service says it has not uncovered evidence to suggest the flaw ‘was leveraged to exploit customer records.’
