Facial-Recognition Company That Works With Law Enforcement Says Entire Client List Was Stolen - www.thedailybeast.com

Excerpts from article:

...Clearview AI, which contracts with law enforcement after reportedly scraping 3 billion images from the web, now says someone got "unauthorized access" to its list of customers.

...The notification said the company's servers were not breached and that there was "no compromise of Clearview's systems or network." The company also said it fixed the vulnerability and that the intruder did not obtain any law-enforcement agencies' search histories.

...One anonymous Canadian law-enforcement official told the paper that Clearview was "the biggest breakthrough in the last decade" for investigations of those crimes.

..."If you're a law-enforcement agency, it's a big deal, because you depend on Clearview as a service provider to have good security, and it seems like they don't," Forscey said.
