Megabreach: 55 MILLION voters' details leaked in Philippines

Based on our investigation, the data dumps include 1.3 million records of overseas Filipino voters, which included passport numbers and expiry dates. What is alarming is that this crucial data is just in plain text and accessible for everyone. Interestingly, we also found a whopping 15.8 million record of fingerprints and list of peoples running for office since the 2010 elections.
 
The data spill comes weeks before upcoming national elections in the Philippines, scheduled for 9 May. Anonymous Philippines warned COMELEC that it ought to harden the security of its vote-counting machines at the time the hacktivists defaced its website.
