Over a Million Financial Records Exposed in Data Incident Involving NorthOne Bank
Jeremiah Fowler discovered yet another unsecured database. This one reportedly had more than one million financial records:
The PDF documents that were made public included invoices from both individuals and businesses who used an app to pay for products and services. The invoices contained names, email addresses and physical addresses, phone numbers, and more. In addition, the documents also included notes about what the payment was for, the total amount, due date, and some even contained tax information such as a tax id number.
Upon further research, it was identified that the database belonged to NorthOne Bank, a financial technology company that is used by over 320,000 American businesses (based on information on their website). It is worth noting that NorthOne is not a full service bank. Banking services to NorthOne Bank are provided by The Bancorp Bank, which is also a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), a government agency that provides deposit insurance to financial institutions. NorthOne Bank has offices in New York, USA and Toronto, Canada and its services are available throughout North America.
