Exploit: Unsecured Database
Razer: Gaming Hardware and eServices Company 

Risk to Small Business: 2.307 = Severe

An unsecured Elasticsearch cluster is the culprit in a sloppy data leak at gaming equipment leader Razer. More than 100K customers had data including their full name, email, phone number, customer internal ID, order number, order details, and billing and shipping address exposed in the incident.

Individual Risk: 2.347 = Severe

While no financial information was exposed, the data that was leaked could be used in spear phishing attacks.

Customers Impacted: 100,000

How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: An unlocked database like this is a treasure trove for cybercriminals – and a rookie mistake by a tech company. It’s a ding on Razer’s reputation.
