Report: unidentified database exposes 200 million Americans

The CyberNews research team reports:

The CyberNews research team uncovered an unsecured database owned by an unidentified party, comprising 800 gigabytes of personal user information.The database in question was left on a publicly accessible server and contained more than 200 million detailed user records, putting an astonishing number of people at risk.

On March 3, 2020, the entirety of the data present on the database was wiped by an unidentified party.

You can read their report  on CyberNews, but they don’t seem to realize that Bob Diachenko and Comparitech had reported on this same leak on March 5 after he found it leaking in January. Neither Diachenko nor CyberNews were able to figure out who owned this one.
