“COMELEAK,” is the incident which involved the illegal copying of the database of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) by the hacker group, LulSecPilipinas. Close to 55million voters’ registration information was disclosed without authority by the same hacker group about five weeks before the national and local elections of May 9, 2016. Personal voter’s information included names, birthdays, home and email addresses, among others. It also included voters’ biometrics (photo, fingerprint markers, and signature)data, passport details of overseas Filipino workers, and other sensitive data. Another group had provided an application on a website “Wehaveyourdata” that made it easier for curious internet users to check data in the illegally copied database.
