Robocall Company Exposes Thousands of US Voter Data
Kromtech Security expert Bob Diachenko said that he has recently discovered a trove of files containing hundreds of thousands of voter records on an Amazon S3 bucket which was completely accessible to anyone even without a password.
The storage, which belonged to a Virginia-based political campaign and robocalling company, had around 2,600 files including spreadsheets and recordings of US political campaigns.
Diachenko said that the files were packed with voters’ full names, home addresses, and political affiliations. Information such as gender, phone numbers, age, birth year, ethnicity, language spoken, education, as well as a jurisdiction breakdown based on district or zip code and other demographics, were included.
