A Nevada-based software startup exposed a database containing the personal information of customers of the casino and hotel resort WinStar. The app My WinStar managed personal information including full names, phone numbers, email addresses, home addresses, gender, and IP address. Though the startup says the database contained publicly available data, TechCrunch confirmed the unauthorized access. Dexiga, the startup behind the app, confirmed that they secured the database, but did not provide clarity on the number of individuals impacted by the security lapse. The casino WinStar has not responded to a request for comment.
