Swiss-based software engineer Tillie Kottmann said Nissan North America's misconfiguration of a Bitbucket Git server led to the online leakage of the automaker’s source code for its mobile applications and internal tools.

Kottmann said the repository was left exposed on the Internet with its default username and admin/admin password combination; Nissan took it offline after the source code began circulating on Monday in the form of torrent links shared on Telegram channels and hacking forums.

A Nissan spokesperson said, "We are aware of a claim regarding a reported improper disclosure of Nissan's confidential information and source code. We take this type of matter seriously and are conducting an investigation."
