- On Monday evening, federal prosecutors said that tech worker Paige A. Thompson has been charged with computer fraud and abuse for stealing data from millions of Capital One customers.
- Thompson allegedly took advantage of a “firewall misconfiguration” that gave her access to data stored in a Capital One cloud server, according to the criminal complaint.
- While the complaint doesn’t name the cloud provider at the heart of the matter, Amazon confirmed to Bloomberg that it was Amazon Web Services. Capital One has been a major AWS customer since at least 2016.
