Microsoft's AI Data Leak Isn't the Last One We'll See
Microsoft has spent most of 2023 advocating for the use of generative AI and positioning itself as a trusted leader in the space. But recent developments revealed the company's AI research team accidentally leaked 38TB of confidential data onto its GitHub page.
So much for trust.
According to cloud security firm Wiz, the data, which included the backup of the computers used by two former employees, as well as passwords encryption keys and Teams threads, was accidentally uploaded to Microsoft’s AI GitHub repository where the team was publishing a tranche of open-source training data.
