Tunefab Audio Converter Exposes User Data

So, you’re one of those folks who miss hoarding a massive collection of downloaded music files, huh? Well, there’s a service for you. It’s called TuneFab.

This platform is like a magician. It can transform music tracks from streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon, and others into various audio formats. We’re talking MP3, WAV, FLAC, and more.

But hold up! TuneFab recently had a bit of a hiccup. And by hiccup, I mean a pretty big data leak. Yeah, that’s right. Sensitive information from a bunch of its users got exposed.

Thinking of using this program? Well, buddy, you’re doing so at your own risk. And it’s not just because of the data leak. You see, using it could land you in hot water for downloading copyrighted material. That’s illegal, by the way. So, we’re not exactly giving it a thumbs up.

Oh, and did I mention? TuneFab just had a big data leak.

Thought your data was safe on the internet? Well, prepare for a letdown. Hacks and data leaks are happening every day. And there’s not really anything we can do to stop it.

Cybernews spotted a leak in TuneFab’s boat back on September 26th. Yeah, this happened a while back. The company managed to patch things up, but the data could have been exposed for up to 24 hours.

According to the reports, the leak happened because of a “misconfiguration on MongoDB, a document-oriented database platform, that left TubeFab’s data passwordless and publicly accessible.” So, the data of more than 151 million users was exposed. What data got out? Well, the data included IP addresses, userArea, emails, userIDs, and device info. That’s the kind of information that you don’t want to get into the wrong hands. The total load of exposed data weighs in at about 280GB, according to researcher Bob Diachenko.

At this point, there’s no telling what the users are going to have to do in the wake of this latest leak. TuneFab hasn’t responded for comment. So, there you have it.
