Exposed Amazon clients get tip-off alerts

Tuesday 22:48 GMT

Security researchers have posted "friendly warnings" to users of Amazon's cloud data storage service whose private content has been made public, the BBC has learned.

Although Amazon is best known for its online shopping service, its AWS division serves many of the world's biggest businesses as well as governments and other public bodies. Some just told the owners that their settings exposed data and others were more explicit in their warnings about what could happen.
