US Customs and Border Protection breach exposes travellers’ images.
Images of tens of thousands of travellers crossing
the United States’ border have been stolen from an immigration
subcontractor in a data breach, US media reported on Monday. The images
were snatched from the network of a subcontractor
for US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), after the company copied
data to its database without the agency’s consent, according to The New
York Times. The data included images of drivers in their cars and
license plates taken over a six-week period at an
undisclosed border crossing, the newspaper said.
