Pentagon Fixes Glitch After Discovery Of Unsecured Server Revealing Military Data

  • An unsecured server that allowed for US military emails to be spilled across the web for weeks was repaired on Monday.
  • The exposed server was hosted on Microsoft’s Azure government cloud, reports TechCrunch, “which uses servers that are physically separated from other commercial customers and as such can be used to share sensitive but unclassified government data.”
  • The server contained roughly three terabytes of military emails which may have pertained to US Special Operations Command.
