Peloton data leak exposes users’ personal data

Peloton is having a pretty bad week. First it was forced to recall its range of treadmills over serious safety concerns, and issue an apology for refusing to act quicker. Now it has emerged that the company has also failed to safeguard user data, some of which is highly personal. 

The security failure was highlighted by TechCrunch, which received information regarding the journalist’s own Peloton account that was set to private. The security researcher was able to access Peloton’s API, which is the system through which apps and devices can connect to Peloton’s servers. The API was happy to present this information without authentication.
