A March breach at a commercial corporate database put the spotlight on risks posed by third-party vendors. Approximately 33.7 million unique email addresses and contact information were exposed as part of a leak of a 52-GB database owned by Dun & Bradstreet, according to a report in ZDNet. The database also contains names, job titles, job functions, work email addresses and phone numbers, as well as general corporate information. The database brings together information on corporations and their employees, to then be sold in bulk or in part to marketers or other companies for targeted sales campaigns. This leaked database, in particular, includes information on tens of thousands of employees at AT&T, Boeing, Dell, FedEx, IBM and Xerox, the report said. The database also includes extensive records on employees at a variety of government agencies, including more than 100,000 at the Department of Defense.
