198 million U.S. voting records stolen
« on: June 23, 2017, 03:06:19 PM »
What privacy? And --- as always --- who profits?

Quote
A huge trove of voter data, including personal information and voter profiling data on what's thought to be every registered US voter dating back more than a decade, has been found on an exposed and unsecured server, ZDNet has learned.

It's believed to be the largest ever known exposure of voter information to date.

The various databases containing 198 million records on American voters from all political parties were found stored on an open Amazon S3 storage server owned by a Republican data analytics firm, Deep Root Analytics.

UpGuard cyber risk analyst Chris Vickery, who found the exposed server, verified the data. Through his responsible disclosure, the server was secured late last week, and prior to publication.

Good God, will someone slap the shit out of the RNC/gop'E?
First off, I want to know how they acquired all this information, and why was it stored on an Internet-accessible server?
Go, I despise the gop'E!

I can hear them now in that oh-so-special triumverate of 9th Circus judges appointed by the Muslim in Chief. Since it was a private company,where's the crime? And why are you upset at them knowing what they do? If you want privacy, don't vote! In fact, please don't, so we can record that fact as well and ID you as apathetic, stupid or too spineless to object.
