Suprema is the security company responsible for the web-based Biostar 2 biometrics lock system that allows centralised control for access to secure facilities like warehouses or office buildings. Biostar 2 uses fingerprints and facial recognition as part of its means of identifying people attempting to gain access to buildings.

The fingerprints of over 1 million people, as well as facial recognition information, unencrypted usernames and passwords, and personal information of employees, were discovered on a publicly accessible database for a company used by the likes of the UK Metropolitan police, defence contractors and banks.

It's one of those stories that's so ridiculous, I'm not even surprised at this point. It's par the course, stupid human error as usual.
