It was discovered that roughly 85 million people’s data (the entire population of Turkey) had their information added to a website where anyone can search for information. The site contains names, addresses, phone numbers and financial information.

The website has basic information available to anyone but for those willing to pay for VIP access they gain additional financial information. Users can search for people by name or other information to quickly look up anyone they want.
