One billion website records exposed in CVS data leak — but here’s why you shouldn’t worry

More than a billion records generated by user visits to websites operated by pharmacy chain CVS were exposed online in an unprotected database — but don’t panic just yet. 

The 1,148,327,940 database entries, totaling 204 GB of data, consisted of user logs, the type of data that websites keep about their visitors. Most of those items were dull — “add to cart, configuration, dashboard, index-pattern, more refinements, order, remove from cart, search, server,” as stated by researcher Jeremiah Fowler in a blog post on the WebsitePlanet site today (June 16).
