Botched Database Leaks Records For 191M Voters

Is there anywhere your information is safe these days? The government has leaked your info. Department stores have leaked your info. Kids toys have leaked your kids info. Game publishers have leaked your info. Now your voting info has been leaked. You might as well put a sign on your door with all your info on it. frown

Researcher Chris Vickery has discovered that a badly configured database exposed the voter registration info for 191 million Americans, including addresses, party affiliations and state voter IDs. It's not clear who originally managed the data, but Vickery and are reaching out to everyone from online services to Congressional political action committees.
