The AA has been criticised over the way it has handled a data breach involving 13 gigabytes of data. The huge cache was viewable online for a few days in April, but the motoring organisation said that it contained no “sensitive” information. However, a security researcher who analysed the leak said he found details like email addresses, names and parts of payment card numbers. He said said it was a “very serious incident” the AA needed to address.
