Online data of all Brazilian citizens leaked

Data on all Brazilian citizens have been leaked online. The Brazilian Consumer Protection Agency has instructed the government to immediately protect citizens' data.

The institute has also directed to take necessary steps for data security immediately. The data leak occurred last week, with data on 223 million Brazilians leaked.

In a country with a total population of 221 million, the question of how 223 million data can be leaked may arise in your mind.

It is also mentioned that there is information about the person who died earlier in the incident. Besides, data of 104 million vehicles in the incident has also been made public.

The data thus made public includes the name of the person, identity card number, marital status, name of the father, mother, and son, and daughter, complete information of the house, credit score, voter registration number, profession, and other details. The person's LinkedIn profile has also been leaked.

It is estimated that these data may have been hacked from the servers of Brazil's credit-scoring bureau and made public. So far, the Brazilian government has not provided any official information on the matter, so no confirmation has been received.

Brazil's Consumer Protection Agency has called for immediate action in the wake of the leak.
