More than 1 billion records connected to CVS Health were visible a non-password-protected database in March, new research shows.

Researchers contacted CVS Health upon the discovery, and the retail giant restricted public access to the database the next day, according to a new report from WebsitePlanet, a website-building resource and research platform.

"In March of this year, a security researcher notified us of a publicly accessible database that contained non-identifiable CVS Health metadata," Mike DeAngelis, senior director of CVS corporate communications, told FOX Business. "We immediately investigated and determined that the database, which was hosted by a third party vendor, did not contain any personal information of our customers, members, or patients."
