Exposed files on Microsoft's document-sharing site
The sensitive information was found via a publicly available search engine that is part of Office 365. Security researcher Kevin Beaumont discovered the sensitive information after using the search engine on Docs.com - a website that is part of the Office 365 online software service. Many users complained to Microsoft via social media about documents being exposed publicly. "Files were still cached in Google's search results, as well as Microsoft's own search engine, Bing," wrote Zack Whittaker from tech news site ZDNet. Microsoft later took steps to block incoming searches from Google to stop information being found.
