18 Oct Records of 35 Million US Voters Reportedly Sold on the Dark Web
Cybersecurity firms Anomali and Intel 471 recently discovered that the personally identifiable information belonging to US residents are being sold on the Dark Web.
The researchers said that they came across communications that offered “a large quantity of voter databases for sale”. They added that the data comes from updated statewide voter lists, and includes millions of full addresses, phone numbers, and names.
It also seems that the seller is able to get weekly updates of voter registration data across the United States, and that the data may be coming from contacts within the state government.
