Abandoned Web Apps Found as a Core Cause Behind High Profile Data Breaches

High-Tech Bridge's study analyzed the 1,000 largest global companies from the US and the EU to collect data for their research, via a "large-scale discovery and non-intrusive assessment of their external web and mobile applications, SSL certificates, web software and unprotected cloud storage. " The research is based on information collected from systems accessible via HTTP/S protocols and not from network components that could be discovered with the help of IoT search engines such as Shodan.

As uncovered by High-Tech Bridge, the 500 most important US companies have 293,512 systems accessible via an Internet connection, out of which 42,549 Internet-facing systems have been found to run active web applications with dynamic functionality and content.

The airline was apparently notified of the breach in February, but the identity of the hackers was only provided to them by SITA in March and April.

The Chicago-based company paid the hackers about two weeks after a trove of company data was stolen, and CNA officials were locked out of their network, according to two people familiar with the attack who asked not to be named because they weren’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly. In a statement, a CNA spokesperson said the company followed the law.
