US voters data sold on Dark Web

Just a few weeks before the 2018 mid-term elections, a huge database was discovered in the Dark Web, which included nearly 35 million US citizens.

Researchers from the US-based cybersecurity company Anomali Labs and Intel 471 have discovered the huge cache on the dark web.

The records contained personal information such as full names of voters, phone numbers, physical addresses, and voting history.

Researchers say that records are not based on a hacking, but instead can be obtained by someone who has access to databases such as a government official.

The price of each voter data ranged between $ 150 and $ 12,500, the researchers said.

The alleged data comes from 19 US states. The list and pricing, as announced by the hackers, is as follows below:

  • Montana – 1000$
  • Louisiana – 5000$ (3 Million Voters)
  • Iowa – 1100$
  • Utah – 1100$
  • Oregon – 500$
  • South Carolina – 2500$
  • Wisconsin – 12500$ (6 Million Voters)
  • Kansas – 200$
  • Georgia – 250$
  • New Mexico – 4000$
  • Minnesota – 150$
  • Wyoming – 500$
  • Kentucky – 2000$
  • Idaho – 1000$
  • Tennessee – 2500$
  • South Dakota – 2500$
  • Mississippi – 1100$
