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.

"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.
