An exposed database on a MoviePass subdomain housing 161 million records was left unsecured and exposed credit card and customer card information on at least 60,000 of the ticket service’s customers. 

The database, which included expiration dates, names and addresses on some users as well as email and passwords, was discovered by SpiderSilk security researcher Mossab Hussein, according to a report from TechCrunch, which said the information may have been exposed for several months. 

“Because a database was left publicly accessible, reportedly for months, at least 58,000 records related to MoviePass customers are vulnerable to misuse and abuse at the hands of cybercriminals,” said Stephan Chenette, Co-Founder and CTO at AttackIQ. “At its peak, MoviePass boasted more than 3 million customers in June 2018, so it’s entirely possible we’ll see the number of impacted individuals grow exponentially.”
