BREAKING: Another Mexican Database Found

BREAKING: Another Mexican Database Found

Back to blog

This is just a quick note to explain that I discovered another publicly exposed Mexican database on Wednesday, May 18th. I reported it to the Mexican electoral authority (INE) that same day.

Today, INE held a press conference and reported that the database has been taken offline. Their initial investigations indicate that the data pertains to the region of Sinaloa. I cannot confirm or deny that aspect at this time.

As far as I know, they did not mention the political party responsible for this leak. I can report that the database was titled “DBPRI” and all signs point to the PRI party as being responsible here. I have included a few screenshots further illustrating the database with this post.

I plan to post more about the situation as things develop.

And yes, I do have a copy of it.
