AMC Networks exposed 1.62 million total records — including data of subscribers’ names, emails, and subscription details — on the open internet connected to its Sundance Now and Shudder subscription streaming services.
Bob Diachenko, cyber threat intelligence director and journalist at Security Discovery, alerted AMC Networks on Wednesday. He wrote:
Diachenko noted the lack of a “proper incident response protocol” at AMC Networks, sharing screenshots of automatically bounced back emails he sent to the company’s security officers.
Public access to the database was eventually shut down after Diachenko reached AMC Networks through a contact at TechCrunch.
Despite the non-sensitivity of the exposed data, Diachenko warned of vulnerabilities to phishing attacks given the exposure of names, emails, and subscriber data.
