Personal data of the majority of Panama’s population leaked online

1 min read

Personal data, including names, phone numbers and birth dates, of more than 80 percent of the population of Panama are leaked online, ZDNet reports after reviewing the findings of an American security investigator.

It was a non-protected database with data from 3.4 million Panamanians. The Central American country has around 4.1 million inhabitants, according to the World Bank.

In addition to names, telephone numbers and birth data, the database also contained other private data, including residential and e-mail addresses and the Panamanian equivalent of the citizen service number. The data leaked varies from person to person.

The unprotected database was closed last weekend, after investigator Bob Diachenko had reported it to the Panamanian authorities.

It is unclear who managed the server and how long the data had been freely accessible online.
