According to the experts, the leak includes government data of an entire country, it was leaked online by a reputable actor that goes online with moniker ‘Toogod.”

“A few weeks ago, our researchers came across a leaked database on the darkweb where a known and reputable actor ‘Toogod” dropped the database of “Taiwan Whole Country Home Registry DB” comprising of 20 Million+ records.” reads a post published by Cyble.

The database size is 3.5 GB, exposed data includes full name, full address, ID, gender, date of birth, and other info.

The seller claims the database dates back as 2019, but Cyble researchers noted the last DOB record was from 2008. The database contains certain records with ‘NULL/empty’ DoB records, making it impossible to determine how recent the dump is.

Experts are still investigating the leak and will provide an update as soon as possible.

Cyble researchers have acquired the leak and will add soon its data to its AmIBreached data breach lookup service.
