puddingebola writes: A researcher has discovered 200 million unsecured voter records have been found in a database maintained by Deep Root Analytics (DRA). Chris Vickery, a Cyber Risk Analyst for UpGuard discovered the data, and was responsible for a similar find in 2015. From the article, "UpGuard says the records were compiled by DRA and at least two other contractors, Target Point Consulting Inc. and Data Trust. Voter information, aside from a few elements protected by law, are public record. Sometimes access to this data can be expensive, other times it's freely available. Yet, the golden rule tends to be that the information can't be used for commercial purposes."
