Veeam Publicly Exposed 445 Million Customers Records Of its Marketing Database

Data Management Company’s misconfigured MongoDB server exposed its marketing database that contains around 445 million its customer records.

Veeam, a company that develops backup, disaster recovery and intelligent data management software for virtual, physical and cloud-based infrastructures.

Exposed data contains more than 200 gigabytes of customer records, mostly names, email addresses, and in some cases IP addresses.

All these data used by Veeam marketing automation team to communicate with their customer with the help of an account-based marketing, including email, mobile, social, digital ads based company called Marketo.

There are more than 445 million records were found in the exposed database under Collections labeled marketo‘, ‘marketo_new’ and ‘marketo-collect’ which was created between 4 years period, from 2013 to 2017.

According to Security researcher, Based on the collection names and analysis of data in the database, my first guess was that database originated from Marketo server, so I also sent security notifications to their email addresses.

“However, upon further analysis, I came to the conclusion that data was part of Veeam marketing server infrastructure, rather than Marketo.”

These data will be the more high impact to threaten users via spammers, phishers and also cybercriminals will use it to delivery the Malware.

The researcher has been reported this issue to the company and the company has updated and secured the Data.

Peter McKay, Co-CEO and President of Veeam said that the company has taken additional steps to ensure every database meets our security protocols and we continue with our investigation into this incident.
