Hackers Are Attempting to Sell 35 Million U.S. Voting Records on the Dark Web

The Infinite Brief
Security researchers discovered Dark Web communications showing that hackers are attempting to sell massive databases containing personally identifiable information and voting history of 35 million Americans.

At least 19 states appear to be affected, and 23 million records for three of the 19 states.

The data that is being offered for sale comes from updated statewide voter lists, and includes millions of full addresses, phone numbers, and names.

It also appears that the seller receives weekly updates of voter registration data across the United States, and that the data is received via contacts within the state government.
