Clearview AI is widely considered as a privacy nightmare. With the exposure of it’s own source code on the Internet due a server misconfiuration, it’s clear that it cannot even handle it’s most important assets.
The privacy blunder was made public by Mossab Hussein, chief security officer of SpiderSilk when he gained access to a repository storing Clearview’s source code. What made the situation even worse, is that the repository also contained Slack tokens that allowed anyone access Clearview’s internal messages without a password. On top of that, 70,000 videos taken by a camera installed at face-height in the lobby of a residential building were also discovered.
