154 million US voter records exposed online

data-breachMacKeeper security researcher Chris Vickery has discovered a database of US voter profiles of US citizens on the web available for viewing by potentially anyone on the internet.

The database contained the name, address, phone number, age, gender, marital status, estimated income, political party, congressional and state senate district affiliation of 154 million voters. Some of the records included additional information.

The data was originally collected by a L2, a data brokerage company. Chris contacted them and three hours later, the database was taken down.
