Since July of 2005, attrition.org has been tracking data loss and data
theft incidents not just from the United States, but across the world. Our
archives go back to the year 2000, and with over 142 MILLION records
compromised in over 300 incidents across six years, we would finally like
to introduce a very basic and rudimentiary database that will assist
others in tracking these incidents.
DLDOS (Data Loss Database - Open Source) is a simple flat comma seperated
value file that can be imported into your database of choice, whether it
be MySQL, Microsoft Access, or Oracle (good luck). We provide the date,
the company that reported the breach, the type of data impacted, the
number of records impacted, third party companies involved, and a few
other sortable items that may be of interest. At this point, attrition.org
is not hosting an actual database itself, but the raw data is free and
available for use as long as attrition.org is credited for the use of said
data. Really, we're not trying to be jerks, but if you're going to use our
data in your research, be it a web site or paper written for a commercial
entity, just give us a shout out please.
Attrition.org's main data loss page can be found here:
Attrition.org's Data Loss Mail List information:
Please feel free to use this information, build on it, grow on it, and
share it. Updates to the raw data will be provided by attrition.org
weekly, if not daily. Share and share alike; distribute and learn.
