05/19/2020

Natura&Co, one of the main online retail business groups in Brazil, dedicated specifically to the sale of cosmetics, suffered an information leak that affected 250,000 clients of the multinational, plus another 40,000 related to a third-party company, Wirecard.

The Safety Detectives security team, currently led by Anurag Sen, discovered the data leak, which includes personal information, on a 272 GB Amazon-hosted server located in the United States. After being informed of this, Natura & Co secured its server and removed all private data from public access.

The database contained 192 million records, including PII (Personally Identifiable Information), and other data such as full name, date of birth, nationality, credentials, email, and phone number.
