Security researcher Chris Vickery has discovered a database of 190 million US voters "sitting on the web," but cannot identify what organization created the database.
The records contain "names, home addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, party affiliations, and logs of whether or not they had voted in primary or general elections," according to a report at Forbes. Vickery and reporters at CSO and DataBreaches.net have contacted NationBuilder, Catalist, Political Data, Aristotle, L2 Political, and NGP VAN and all disavow the files.
