Firm Contracted By RNC Left Millions Of Voter Files Unsecured Online
So it seems that it’s not only Democrats who have trouble keeping their digital information secure online. An extensive Republican database of information about 198 million Americans was obtained by a security researcher, who found it on an Amazon server, with not even a single password protecting it.
The data included home addresses, birth dates and phone numbers of voters from both parties. It was discovered by Chris Vickery, a cyber-risk analyst with the firm UpGuard.
