More than 191 million US voters' records have been discovered online by security researchers and reporters.
The database reportedly contains voters' names and addresses, voter identification numbers, phone numbers, dates of birth, and political affiliations. Included in the data is a itemized voting history since 2000.
It's believed that the data was initially bought by an third-party firm, which gives others' -- such as political campaigns -- access to large portions of voter data at a lower cost. Vickery said that the database originated from Nation Builder, a software company with backing from venture capitalist Ben Horowitz and Napster co-founder Sean Parker.
Nation Builder did not immediately return an email for comment at the time, but told The Hill that the company "cannot control what happens" to voter data once customers buy it.
The data is used by political campaigns to narrow down their messages with their target demographics.
CSO reporter Steve Ragan said that he doesn't blame the company for his leaked record.
"I blame the person(s) who developed the database and poorly configured its hosting," he said on his blog. "I'm just not sure who they are yet."
The data is still online as of Monday, said DataBreaches.net.
