WikiLeaks Just Published Tons of Credit Card and Social Security Numbers
The organization has also used that tradition of transparency for less just causes, like today when the site published 19,252 emails from top US Democratic National Committee members, many of which included personal information about innocent donors including credit card, social security numbers, and passport numbers.
If you visit the WikiLeaks DNC emails website, you can browse the emails using a simple boolean search. Typing a word like “contribution” will actually turn up hundreds of results. The emails include unencrypted, plain-text listings of donor emails addresses, home addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, passport numbers, and credit card information.
If you’ve donated to the Democratic Party at all, you may want to look into it. WikiLeaks even has a “convenient” search engine here, if you want to assess the damage.
