A data breach affecting 20 million people – 3 million more than the population of Ecuador – is said to potentially expose every Ecuadorian citizen’s data. Among the victims are the Ecuadorian president Lenín Moreno and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is currently residing at the Ecuadorian Embassy. The exposed data has been sourced to government registries, as well as a national bank and automotive association. It includes taxpayer identification numbers, driving records and back account records.
