Skip to comments.Why is a 22GB database containing 56 million US folks' personal details sitting on the open internet using a Chinese IP address? Seriously, why?

Exclusive A database containing the personal details of 56.25m US residents from names and home addresses to phone numbers and ages has been found on the public internet, served from a computer with a Chinese IP address, bizarrely enough.
The information silo appears to have been obtained somehow from Florida-based CheckPeople.com, which is a typical people-finder website: for a fee, you can enter someone's name, and it will look up their current and past addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, names of relatives, and even criminal records in some cases, all presumably gathered from public records.
However, all of this information is not only sitting in one place for spammers, miscreants, and other netizens to download in bulk, it's being served from an IP address associated with Alibaba's web hosting wing in Hangzhou, east China, for reasons unknown. It is a perfect illustration that not only is this sort of personal information in circulation, it's also in the hands of foreign adversaries.
Only 22 gigs? Impossibru. Maybe 22 petabytes.
Because, the Clintons. That’s the usual answer for everything that is bad for the citizens.
Illegal voting list?
Ah! So THAT’s where I left it!
It works out to an average of about 420 characters per person, which is more than enough for their name, mailing address, phone, and e-mail.
If someone gets a computer file listing of Demonicrat Party members, that would encompass a lot of the traitors to the United States of America.
all the info they have is already available from multiple people search websites. what is the point?
Why? Because they can.
Why did they rob the bank? Because that’s where the money is.
Why did they climb the mountain? Because it was there.
The moral of the story is self evident.
And who is the software used by the public schools outsourced to thereby providing host governments with access to sensitive information about our future leaders?
Has the author ever googled his name?
But in this case its the Crintons
How else would those services work than to have info in a giant database?
If it’s so insecure, have the author go download us a copy.
“We have withheld further details for privacy protection reasons.”
uh, since that makes it impossible to verify that this supposedly open-to-the-public database even exists, how do we know that hacker “lynx” isn’t just making this up?
I know - they called me 6 times today.
Remember when 0moeba made an art history major in charge of IT security for the OMB, which stores the electronic form of Federal Employee employment applications?
Are these the 52 million who have clearances?
Our enemies have a vested interest in seeing a democrat elected... All they have to do is 'vote the people who don't show up to vote'... The FBI needs to see voter roles with fake names to see if someone is voting those people. Or non-people as the case may be...
May as well get used to it...There's no turning back now...
