Biostar security software 'leaked a million fingerprints'
More than a million fingerprints and other sensitive data have been exposed online by a biometric security firm.
Researchers working with cyber-security firm VPNMentor managed to access data from a security tool called Biostar 2.
According to VPNMentor, the exposed data, discovered on 5 August, was made private on 13 August.
It is not clear how long it was accessible.
As well as fingerprint records, the researchers say they found photographs of people, facial recognition data, names, addresses, passwords, employment history and records of when they had accessed secure areas.
