Hackers put up website to easily search leaked COMELEC database

After the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) downplayed the hacking incident a few weeks ago that said to leak sensitive data of voters in the Philippines, a website has just been put up for online users to search for these hacked data.

The website ‘Philippines, we have your data :b‘, https://wehaveyourdata.com/, claimed to have a copy of the leaked COMELEC database. The site offers a search engine-like service where netizens can just type in a name and search for the associated voter’s information.

Some users are unable to find their information on the said website specially the newly registered ones. It seems like those old registered users are part of the leaked database as even those that did not renewed their registrations are still reflecting in the website.

Part of the sensitive information that are made available on the website are voter’s full name, address and birth dates. You can check your information if it’s part of the leak on this link.

With this recent turn of event, a lot of Filipino voters are now exposed to identity theft and other fraudulent acts. Global security firm Trend Micro earlier warned COMELEC about the huge data that has been leaked by the hackers but the agency just downplayed the report.
