A little-known Florida company may have exposed the personal data of almost every American adult, according to a new report. "The categories range from interests and habits to the number, age, and gender of the person's children", according to Wired, which verified that the data was legitimate.
The database does not contain Social Security numbers, bank account details or other direct financial account information, Troia says.
The database he unearthed contained two terabytes of information, so much data it would take around five full days and nights to download on a 38Mb broadband connection. When he examined the roughly 7,000 results of that query, he saw the Exactis database and discovered that it had no firewall protection. Then, we'll probably learn that even more people were affected by this leak, and then it'll finally leave the news cycle, we expect.
The Exactiswebsite claims that the firm has the data of 218 million individuals, this includes 110 million USA households and 3.5 billion "consumer, business and digital records". "I searched celebrities, I searched people I know", he said.
Just because people's financial information or Social Security numbers weren't leaked doesn't mean they're not at risk for identity theft. He said he warned Exactis and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the vulnerability, and the data is no longer publicly accessible.
GM may slash American jobs because of Trump tariffs
Last year, about 36% of GM's US sales were imported, or about 1.1 million vehicles, according to research firm LMC Automotive. In addition to Canada, the European Union and Mexico are among those that have announced tariffs on U.S. goods in response.
It's not clear whether a hacker accessed the database, but Troia said it was not hard for him to find.
Though the data seems to be secure now, there's no telling how many people - if any - got access to the database. "What makes the Exactis breach noteworthy is not only for the number of customers impacted, but also for the depth of compromised data. Further, as 110 million of the records pertain to businesses, criminals could utilize the data for spear-phishing campaigns aimed at data exfiltration", Fischbach wrote via email.
On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, Equifaxannounced that Mark Begor will become its CEO as the credit reporting company continues to try to recover from fallout surrounding a massive data breach.
Exactis is a firm whose specialization involves helping businesses reach potential clients through phone numbers and email or postal addresses.
On the company's website, Exactis.com, the firm describes itself as a "leading compiler and aggregator of premium business and computer data", storing "over 3.5 billion records (updated monthly)".
Troia says that whoever he has looked up in these records, he has found them.
