(WHTM) — If you searched for something on a CVS website, someone else may have seen it.

CVS says an unsecured database of more than a billion search records was accidentally posted publicly online earlier this spring. CVS says no medical records or personal data was exposed, however, searches for vaccines and other medications were.

The data breach could pose an issue with people who entered their own phone numbers or email addresses in the CVS search bar.
