Microsoft secures server that leaked Bing’s data

Bing data

Bing data was leaked by a backend server recently. However, Bing clarified that no personal end-user data was leaked. The issue had occurred as one of the IT personnel from the organization had accidentally left a backed server exposed. Ata Hackil, a security researcher at WizCase, identified the breach. He said the server has supposedly exposed 6.5 TB of log files. It’s estimated that the log files contained 13 billion records, all originating from the Bing search platform.
