92 million Brazilians’ data leaked
08.10.2019Back to news
Almost half of Brazil population got their personal data breached to a few members-only forums on the dark web.
92 million Brazilians’ details stored in the 16GB SQL database included names, gender, birth dates, taxpayer IDs.
Also the seller of the data has a search instrument which comes in a bundle. The instrument facilitates gathering of the citizens’ records taking into account that the little is known about some individual: enter a name and taxpayer ID, for example, and you will obtain such data as a driver’s license or ID card.
The local law LGDP (Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados or Brazilian General Data Protection [Act]), homologous with the EU GDPR, would be in charge of the incident, but the regulator will come into effect only on August 15, 2020.
