A data breach exposed the sensitive information of 1.8 million Illinois citizens, Gizmodo reports. Cyber resilience firm UpGuard found an Amazon Web Services device controlled by leading voting machine supplier Election Systems & Software. The device was not protected by a password and was then downloaded by Cyber Risk Analyst Chris Vickery. The compromised information included citizens' names, addresses, dates of birth, partial Social Security numbers, party affiliations and, in some cases, driver's license and state ID numbers. “ES&S was able to secure the data promptly and issue a public statement with the details of the exposure, aiding the UpGuard Cyber Risk Team in our mission of ensuring that exposed information is secured," UpGuard CEO Mike Baukes said.
