• vpnMentor reports a data breach identifying 80 million US households

    I can’t verify this independently, but if it’s confirmed, we have one whale of a breach on our hands.

    vpnMentor’s blog says:

    The 24 GB database includes the number of people living in each household with their full names, their marital status, income bracket, age, and more…

    Full addresses, too, including zip codes, longitude, latitude.

    Apparently the list is indexed by households, not by individuals.

    vpnMentor says it’s looking for the owner of the database.

    Let’s see how this pans out.

    Thx Günter Born.
