In June of 2018, Florida-based marketing and data aggregation firm Exactis exposed a database containing nearly 340 million records on a publicly accessible server. The breach exposed highly personal information such as people's phone numbers, home and email addresses, interests and the number, age and gender of their children. This data exposure was discovered by security expert Vinny Troia, who indicated that the breach included data on hundreds of millions of US adults and millions of businesses.
