It has been reported that the personal records of most of Ecuador’s population, including children, has been left exposed online due to a misconfigured database.

The database, an Elasticsearch searver, was discovered two weeks ago and contained a total of approximately 20.8 million user records, a number larger than the country’s total population count. The bigger number comes from duplicate records or older entries, containing the data of deceased persons.
