USPS Data Breach Exposes Data of 60 Million Users

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has recently opened up about a security vulnerability, which went unfixed for a full year. The data breach was reported to expose personal data of 60 million users. The problem has been tied to an authentication weakness in the mail carrier’s API, which allowed cybercriminals free access from within USPS.com.

Concerns linger as authorities evaluate the extent of the damage done over the past year and the ramifications going forward.
