Exclusive: The files included gigabytes of emails, sensitive government files, and a password list, which researchers say could give hackers 'full access' to the airport's systems.

A security lapse at a New York international airport left its server backups exposed on the open internet for almost a year, ZDNet has found.

The internet-connected storage drive contained several backup images of servers used by Stewart International Airport, but neither the backup drive nor the disk images were password protected, allowing anyone to access their contents.
