After the massive Equifax breach that exposed nearly 143 million Americans’ critical data, it’s hard to think of a breach that could be larger in scope. But, believe it or not, it just happened.

This latest data breach may just have more than doubled the Equifax breach’s headcount! If you’re a U.S. citizen, you and your children are most likely affected by this incredibly massive data leak.

Read on and find out what happened and what personal information is at risk.

Exactis leak

Marketing and data aggregation firm called Exactis may have just leaked the personal information of nearly 340 million U.S. citizens including phone numbers, home addresses, email addresses, interests and even the number, age and gender of their children.

How massive is this data leak? Well, it may very well include the information of the entire U.S. population.

Who is Exactis anyway? The company is not exactly a household name but it is one of the largest compilers and collectors of consumer data. Based in Palm Coast, Florida, Exactis claims to have over 3.5 billion records in their database.
