Personal details of nearly 200 million US citizens exposed

Sensitive personal details relating to almost 200 million US citizens have been accidentally exposed by a marketing firm contracted by the Republican National Committee.

The 1.1 terabytes of data includes birthdates, home addresses, telephone numbers and political views of nearly 62% of the entire US population.

The data was available on a publicly accessible Amazon cloud server.

Anyone could access the data as long as they had a link to it.

    Seems to be the thing to do. Today Kathleen Wynne has her government in court wanting to release all of the financial details of doctor’s who bill OHIP. She does not however have any plans to show how the money is being used, (Most doctor’s have offices, staff, and equipment to maintain) but the Bitch wants a Sunshine List in order to blame someone for her mismanagement of the Health Portfolio.

    • And she’ll still beat whatshisname.

    Just wonderful. Computer security? What’s that ? Seems to be the prevailing attitude.
    I also notice a lesson. Don’t answer personal questions. Tell the pollsters to get stuffed.

    When progressives rant about demanding transparency, this is what they mean. For the rest of us it is about transparency in government, but the progressives want the privacy of those who dissent from their agenda exposed in order to ruin them. This is why I question that this was an accident.
