Georgia voter info posted online after breach of software company

Mark Niesse reports:

A data breach of the voting software company EasyVote Solutions exposed Georgia voters’ registration information on the internet, the company confirmed Tuesday.

Public information about voters was posted to an online forum, but the breach didn’t involve Social Security numbers or driver’s license numbers, said Charles Davis, chief financial officer for EasyVote. Voter registration information can include names, addresses, races and dates of birth.

EasyVote’s software isn’t connected to Georgia voter registration computers. EasyVote doesn’t generate or count ballots, and it’s not used for election results.

From the reporting, it does not seem to be clear yet whether this was a leak that someone found and posted or if it was a hack and leak.
