The mobile app for the 'world's biggest casino' had some major security flaws
The mobile app for the "world's biggest casino," My WinStar, had a security flaw that exposed customers' private data. The app sent the data to an unprotected database on the web, accessible to anyone. The exposed database contained names, phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses. The security researcher who discovered the flaw tipped off TechCrunch, and the database's owner was confirmed to be Dexiga, the tech startup behind My WinStar. Dexiga claims the database only contained publicly available information. The database has since been secured.
