More Than 54,000 Scanned NSW Driver Licences Exposed On Cloud

SYDNEY: Tens of thousands of scanned NSW driver’s licences and completed tolling notices have been exposed on open Amazon Web Services storage.

The open AWS S3 bucket was discovered by Bob Diachenko of Security Discovery.

“All the documents I observed were related to the NSW area and there was no indication as to who might be the owner of the data,” Diachenko told iTnews.

One folder contained 108,535 images of the front and back of scanned driver’s licences, and another contained scans of Roads and Maritime Services tolling notice statutory declarations, in PDF and JPG format.

A spokesperson for Transport for NSW said the agency is working with Cyber Security NSW to investigate.
