Forum for Democracy's forum app leaked data 92,000 members
Germany's second-largest political party has been hit by a data breach.
The API (application programming interface) through which the ForumApp communicates with the backend does not appear to control who requests what data and whether that person is authorized to do so. Political affiliation is a special personal data for which extra protection applies and, in principle, may not be processed unless there is a statutory exception, according to the Personal Data Authority. The data breach is reported to the Personal Data Authority.
