Scans of air tickets, passports and receipts from banks were found in the search for “Yandex”

The search engine indexed the personal data of Russians from the services for buying tickets and websites of Sberbank and VTB.

The network again turned out to be personal data of users. Among them are scans of passports, information about bank payments, electronic tickets for airplanes and trains. This information is provided by the sites of the largest Russian banks (Sberbank and VTB), the Moscow Department of Transportation and the ticket aggregator. The leak was discovered by an expert on working with search engines Pavel Medvedev .

“Yandex” argues that the search robot indexes only those data that are not protected by a special file. In general, this is the concern of the site owner or web developer.
