>A misconfigured database has led to the disclosure of 191 million voter records. The database, discovered by researcher Chris Vickery, doesn't seem to have an owner; it's just sitting in the public – waiting to be discovered by anyone who happens to be looking.
>The database contains a voter's full name (first, middle, last), their home address, mailing address, a unique voter ID, state voter ID, gender, date of birth, date of registration, phone number, a yes/no field for if the number is on the national do-not-call list, political affiliation, and a detailed voting history since 2000. In addition, the database contains fields for voter prediction scores.

Am I paranoid or is this something for the Clintons to benefit from AGAIN?!
>>
Well at least it isn't our socials.
This is worrisome, but far from something that will cause any real damage.
>>
Sanders has gone too far this time.
I think he ought to be disqualified from the race for this.
>>
All of this data is practically freely available already.
>>
>>12157
Wasserman Schultz please step down already, your bias is ridiculously obvious.

>>12166
A version of it is.

But in New Mexico we have a saying:

>"The dead Indians always vote Democrat."
>>
>>12205
That's why you need a comprehensive federal agency that deals with this stuff, if old Mexico can do it then there's no reason why the US can't.
In Mexico when you turn 18 you go get a free ID card that is valid for almost everything that requires ID, you need it to vote and you can only vote in your district, if you're elsewhere for whatever reason then you need to use special ballots which are easily trackable and accounted for.
>using a 200 year old electoral system

>>12166
This.

A friend of mine was an intern for someone running for congress, and just as an intern had access to all the same shit for our state. He looked through it all, being the Democrat he is.
>>
>>12166
Where?

Where is OP's database, how can it "not seem to have an owner" is it just on some open google group or a forum dump like all the congressmen address leaked at complete chan?
>>
> whitehat
No. That's not what a whitehat hacker does
>>
>>12443
Actually, it's exactly what a whitehat does. You can tell he's a whitehat because he 1) did everything in his power to fix the problem while 2) minimizing further exposure.

By comparison, a blackhat would have simply sold the information on the black market, or perhaps found a vulnerability in the obviously misconfigured database and used it for personal gain.

As a rule of thumb, when somebody tries to fix a problem, they're a whitehat. When they exploit the problem, they're a blackhat.

>Where?

Here is Ohio's, for example:

http://voterlookup.sos.state.oh.us/voterlookup.aspx

It's hardly a major breakin when all you need to know is the name and county to look up anyone's registration in the state.

I just looked up a friend of mine. Full name, home address, and their polling location.

It's a public database. Anyone who works on a volunteer campaign can get a full copy of it. This "hax" is about as significant as Anonymoose opening a phone book.

What is truly worrisome is the fact that your voting history is saved.

On what grounds exactly do they take the right to save this information?
>>
>>12486
What grounds do you have the right to prevent basic record keeping and freedom of the press?
>>
>>12583
It's private data and no one needs to know?
>>
>>12830
Its called public office for a reason.
Economists, auditors, historians, politicians, and dozens of other vocations and industries need to know to do their job and cater to public need.
>>
>a detailed voting history since 2000
Some one explain this.

Do you Americans have to fill out your personal details on the same slip that you have to tick the box next to either dickehead 1 or dickhead two's name?
>>
>>12205
>When I die, I want to be buried in Hudson County so I can remain active in politics.
Thankfully, that kind of large-scale fraud in state and federal elections is nearly extinct.
Here's a Heritage Foundation sampling:
http://thf_media.s3.amazonaws.com/2015/pdf/VoterFraudCases-Merged-3-2.pdf
Nearly all cases were transparent attempts by individuals to impersonate another registered voter in order to vote in a local election. In a locally-administered race where the margin of victory might be less than 10 votes, it's apparently still pretty tempting for some people.

Whoa, jefe, cool it with your socialist dystopia.

His name was Robert Paulson, but his friends called him David Davidson, the hacker known as 4chan.
