Israeli firm says info for 62 million US voters found for sale online

An Israeli cyber security firm says it has uncovered a databank with information on 62 million US voters in 17 states up for sale, Haaretz reports.

ClearSky says it discovered the data pool last week, which includes information on voters’ political opinions.

“We provide focused alerts to entities in Israel and abroad, and in order to do that, we have to track attackers through a variety of methods. As part of our tracking, we monitor markets where cyberattackers try to market their dubious goods, and that’s how we found the data pool on American voters ahead of Election Day. The data are fairly up-to-date. Some were last updated in 2017 and some in 2015,” ClearSky’s Boaz Dolev tells Haaretz.
