TSA ‘no fly’ list leaked after being found on unsecured airline server

Chris Pandolfo reports:

The Swiss hacker known as “maia arson crimew” blogged Thursday that she discovered the Transportation Security Administration “no fly” list from 2019 and a trove of data belonging to CommuteAir on an unsecured Amazon Web Services cloud server used by the airline.

The hacker told The Daily Dot the list appeared to have more than 1.5 million entries. The data reportedly included names and birthdates of various individuals who have been barred from air travel by the government due to suspected or known ties to terrorist organizations. The Daily Dot reported that the list contains multiple aliases, so the number of unique individuals on the list is far less at 1.5 million.
