Trump campaign exposes personal data of nearly 200m voters

Category: News

Sensitive personal information on more than 198 million voters in the United States was stored unencrypted and with no access controls in the cloud, potentially creating one of the largest data leaks ever.

Measuring 1.1TB, the information was stored in an unprotected Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket as spreadsheet files.

Looks like no one needed to “hack” anything to affect the elections, it was all just sitting there waiting to be taken!
