Navionics’ misconfigured MongoDB server exposes 260,000 records

The Garmin-owned marine navigation company Navionics’ security has sprung a leak with more than 260,000 customer records being found exposed on a misconfigured MongoDB server.

The records were found by Bob Diachenko, director of cyber risk researcher at Hacken, who came across the records after they were indexed by the Shodan search engine on September 10. Altogether more than 19GB of data containing 261,259 records were included with information such as email addresses, names in some cases, purchased products IDs, and user IDs being left in the open.

Other data left in the open was “application version and platform used, device ID, longitude and latitude, boat speed, a navigation device, horizontal accuracy, and other navigation details,” Diachenko said.
