Too Much Information: 2.3 Billion Files Exposed Across Online File Storage Technologies

There are now 750 million more files exposed than our Photon Research Team reported last year; not all of them are blatantly sensitive, but there is plenty of gold in these mountains. Several developments over the past year have had an effect—positive and negative—on the data exposure landscape, prompting Photon to re-examine what files are still exposed and updates within the landscape.


Overall, we detected 2.3 billion files exposed across SMB-enabled file shares, misconfigured network-attached storage (NAS) devices, File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and rsync servers, and Amazon S3 buckets. Get the full report to see our top findings.
