Giant car manufacturer, Toyota, has confirmed another years-long data leak, this time exposing at least 260,000 car owners.
Toyota disclosed the recent development in a statement on Wednesday.
The automaker admitted earlier this month that customer data was accessible by anyone from the wider internet, prompting it to perform a more thorough audit of its cloud settings and discover the misconfiguration.
According to the statement, customers’ automotive navigation systems in Japan display in-vehicle device identifiers and mapping data, were among the newly uncovered exposed data, however the information on its own does not contain location information and cannot reveal or identify customers.
Customers of Toyota who purchased a vehicle as recently as December 2007 and whose data was compromised between February 2015 and May 2023 may be impacted.
