A school contractor that provides online examination registration for schools in the US has exposed the personal information of students and parents after leaving its Amazon cloud storage unsecured without a password. It is estimated that tens of thousands of students who had registered for upcoming tests are affected, exposing data such as name, student ID, email address, phone number and postal address.
