|Headline||Sheffield license plate monitoring system breached|
The automatic license plate recognition system -ANPR- controlled by Sheffield City Council was exposed on the Internet, allowing the data of 8.6 million road trip records to be displayed and exposed to anyone who connects to the network. The data stored is the license plate, location, time… of each car. A single camera was capable of ‘capturing’ 21,000 vehicles, and all this type of information was exposed.
