The cloud leak followed by Pentagon’s Data Leak which exposed than 1.8 billion posts of content of social media contents that captured around 8 years.

Leaked data consist of billions of public internet posts, news commentary and other writings from individuals from the US and other Countries.

Security researcher Chris vickery found amazon Bucket for public access on last September, which allows any user with free AWS account can read and download the contents by just entering the URL.

The respository that present in the bucket has a subdomain “inscom,” which relates to US Army and the NSA. Bucket consists of 47 files and folcers with read permission and three of them with download permissions.

Files that are available to download consist of highly sensitive information exposing national security data, some of it explicitly classified.

Researchers found.ova file which can load through Oracle VirtualBox consists of a Virtual hard drive likely to be used to retrieve data from remote location and they found the data can be accessed without connecting to Pentagon systems.

Top Secret

A hard drive reveals a human-configured installation of files for use with Red Disk, a troubled Defense Department cloud intelligence platform partially integrated into the Pentagon’s DCGS-A program.Upguard said. Also they found a text fine that provides directions for .ova.
