“Largest Ever” Voter Records Leak Discovered; Approximately 198 Million Records

A poorly or unsecured Amazon Web Services server was the cause for what is being touted as the “largest ever known exposure of voter information to date.” The data was stored on an Amazon s3 storage server that is operated by Deep Root Analytics, and the companies Co-Founder, Alex Lundry, has released a statement indicating that they take, “full responsibility for this situation.” The data stolen includes voter’s name, date of birth, home address, phone number, and voter registration details. Some outlets are even reporting that the information in the leak has predictions on which candidate a particular voter intends to vote for.
