Submission + - Researcher Seeks Help Finding Developers of App Exposing 198,000 Users (csoonline.com)

itwbennett writes: Researcher Chris Vickery has previously discovered database misconfiguration issues leading to exposure of sensitive information on 1,700 kids whose parents used the uKnowKids.com monitoring service, user accounts of millions of Hello Kitty fans, millions of voter records, and personal information of millions of MacKeeper users, among others. Now, he is trying to find the owners of a database containing 190,000 records, including email addresses, usernames and hashed passwords, that is sitting open in the public. 'The exposed records are connected to an iPhone application called Kinotopic,' writes CSO Online's Steve Ragan. But Vickery has been unable to contact them. 'I have tried to get in touch with the Kinotopic developers in several ways. All were unsuccessful,' Vickery wrote in a blog post explaining the situation.
