2. Sacramento Bee

Number Of Records Exposed: 19.4 Million

Two Sacramento Bee databases on a third-party computer server were seized in January by an anonymous hacker who demanded The Bee pay a ransom in Bitcoin to get the data back.

The intrusion exposed one database containing California voter registration data from the California Secretary of State, and another that had contact information for subscribers who activated their digital accounts prior to 2017. The Bee did not pay the ransom and deleted the databases to prevent further attacks.

The voter database included contact information – addresses and phone numbers – and party affiliations, dates of birth and places of birth for 19.4 million voters. The subscriber database, meanwhile, included the names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of 53,000 current and former Bee subscribers.
