SANTIAGO  - A hacker broke into Chile's government sites mining data from six million people which he then posted on the Internet on two popular servers for several hours, the El Mercurio daily said Sunday. The personal data included names, street and email addresses, telephone numbers, social and educational background, and was taken from Education Ministry, Electoral Service and state-run telephone companies' websites from late Saturday to early Sunday. "It's a serious matter and we're investigating," Police Cibercrime Brigade chief Jaime Jara told the newspaper. The data was displayed for several hours before authorities removed it on the technology information website "FayerWayer" and community website "ElAntro." The hacker said on the websites he splashed the data "for the whole world to see ... (to) show how unprotected personal data is in Chile ... nobody bothers protecting that information.
