Groupon Leaks Entire Indian User Database

Patrick Gray of Risky.Biz reports: The entire user database of Groupon's Indian subsidiary was accidentally published to the Internet and indexed by Google.
The database includes the e-mail addresses and clear-text passwords of the site's 300,000 users. It was discovered by Australian security consultant Daniel Grzelak as he searched for publicly accessible databases containing e-mail address and password pairs.
Grzelak used Google to search for SQL database files that were web accessible and contained keywords like "password" and "gmail".
"A few hours and tweaks later, this database came up," he said. "I started scrolling, and scrolling and I couldn't get to the bottom of the file. Then I realized how big it actually was."
