Massive US Voters and Consumers Databases Circulate Among Hackers
October 21, 2020

Ziv Mador

Voting in the U.S. elections started recently and there is a real concern over interference and disinformation campaigns that might impact their outcome. During investigations around the elections, the Trustwave SpiderLabs team discovered massive databases with detailed information about U.S. voters and consumers offered for sale on several hacker forums. Those databases include a shocking level of detail about citizens including their political affiliation. The sellers of the U.S. voter database claim that it includes 186 million records, and if that is correct, that means it includes information about nearly all voters in the U.S. The information found in the voter database can be used to conduct effective social engineering scams and spread disinformation to potentially impact the elections, particularly in swing states.

The U.S. consumer database is claimed to include 245 million records, which is nearly the entire population of the U.S. Over 400 potential data points are provided about each person. Databases with information about citizens in other countries are also offered, such as ones for Canada, U.K., Ireland, and South Africa. Based on Bitcoin transaction information also obtained by Trustwave SpiderLabs during the investigation, the cybercriminal group made a fortune worth $100 million USD in the last five months alone. Interestingly, at least some of the data stems from publicly available government resources and hackers happily mention that in forum discussions. Other parts of the data were likely obtained from various data leaks.
US Voter Database for Sale

Cybercriminals have figured out ways to monetize the upcoming elections using information from data leaks and publicly available sources and are actively shopping them for profit. We found the following post from the end of September 2020. The author was selling a database that includes the names, addresses, age, gender, and political affiliation of 186 million voters in the US:
