Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE:AYX). Our investigation concerns whether Alteryx has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.
On December 19, 2017, UpGuard, a cyber risk company, reported that Alteryx left a database containing sensitive information on 123 million American households unsecured and open to the public. Chris Vickery, UpGuard’s cyber risk research director, told the Huffington Post he stumbled across the 36-gigabyte database during a routine search of Amazon Web Services’ storage “buckets,” which house data for numerous companies of all sizes. Vickery stated, “If you’re an American, your information probably was exposed.”
According to CNET and the Huffington Post, the data set included 248 different data fields covering a wide variety of specific personal information, including address, age, gender, education, occupation and marital status. Other fields included mortgage and financial information, phone numbers and the number of children in the household.
