[News] Voters’ Data from COMELEC Hack Made Available with a Search Engine

Privacy nightmare!

When Lulzec hacked the official COMELEC website and released dumps of its entire database, it wasn’t readily readable by persons without a background in Information Technology (IT).

However, a website appeared on April 21, 2016 that allows anyone to input a name and search the said database for the voter’s data. This includes the complete address, age, marital status, parents’ complete names and registration place.

This is a privacy nightmare for those who are in the database and their family. The data can be used in identity theftfraudstalking and blackmailing.

A WHOIS query for the website’s domain name shows that a Russian owns it. However, this can be easily faked. A better way of identifying the person behind this is tracking the owner of the publisher ID of the advertisements.


At around 8pm, the website has already been taken down but the data is now available on torrent and p2p. 


Filipino datum containing 700 Million voters are now compromised to the hands of Cyber hackers and criminals.
