The voter registration and personal details of millions of Israeli citizens were leaked online on Monday, just two days before the country held general elections for its unicameral parliament, known as the Knesset.
Exposed information included the voter registration details of 6,528,565 Israelis and the personal details of 3,179,313 of Israel’s estimated 9.3 million total population.
For the latter, details like full names, phone numbers, ID card numbers, home addresses, gender, age, and political preferences were included.
A threat actor calling itself “The Israeli Autumn” took credit for the leak, according to reports from Israeli media, who said they received emails over the weekend with links to a Ghostbin page hosting the data.
But since Monday, the data has now been widely shared on multiple Telegram channels, Raveed Laeb, Product Manager at Israeli threat intelligence firm KELA, told The Record on Wednesday, after finding his own personal details in the leaked files.
