Jamaica leak: traveler data exposed

Jamaica leak

A security issue with the system developed by a central government supplier exposed information from those who traveled to Jamaica in the last year. More specifically, travel documents and test results for COVID-19. According to what has been leaked, hundreds of thousands of people are involved, most of them American nationals.

JamCOVID19: data of those who traveled to Jamaica exposed

Responsibility is attributed to the JamCOVID19 website created and managed by the Amber Group which publishes numbers relating to the infection every day and allows residents to report their symptoms. The portal also hosts a section dedicated to those who are about to travel to the country and, coming from territories considered "at risk", must necessarily communicate the negative results of the tests to the authorities. One of the AWS cloud infrastructure servers delegated to collect them was left without any kind of protection, thus showing the side of the leak.

It contained over 70,000 coronavirus test results and more than 425,000 documents with lots of name, surname, date of birth and passport number. Also present was information relating to approximately 250,000 quarantine orders for those potentially in contact with the disease and at least 440,000 scans of signatures.

1.1 million videos then exhibited that the local government asked visitors to record every day to certify their stay in the permitted locations, through a mobile application to be installed compulsorily upon entering the country and always developed by Amber Group. We close with the comment released by Jamaica Information Service which in fact confirms the vulnerability.

An in-depth investigation was immediately launched to determine if there were any breaches in the security of travelers' data, if vulnerabilities were exposed and if laws were broken. There is currently no evidence to suggest that the vulnerability was maliciously forced by data stealing prior to its correction.
