Nearly the entire population of Ecuador had their personal data leaked online, security experts said Monday, a massive breach that the government called a "very delicate" issue.
"This data breach is particularly serious simply because of how much information was revealed about each individual", vpnMentor said".
The small South American nation is home to just over 17 million people, meaning almost everyone could have been exposed - but it is not clear if anyone has gotten their hands on the data.

They discovered an Elasticsearch server owned by a company called Novaestrat, which claims to provide analytics services for the local market.
The information could potentially be used to commit everything from phone scam to business fraud.

The company said the data appeared to have been pulled from government registries, an automotive association and from the BIESS bank.
