Massive US voter data breach, FTC to block fantasy sports mergerToday's major tech stories include a massive data breach that exposes American voters, Time Warner's new content deal with Snap and the FTC moves to block a big fantasy sports merger.
This is CNet and here's the stories that matter right now. Sensitive information on nearly 200 million Americans that's 60% of the country's population has been exposed in what's potentially the largest data leak in history. Cyber security company UpGuard discovered the issue and found that an RNC hired analytics group Called Deep Root Analytics, had the information freely available on an Amazon public server. Currently it's believed the data was not accessed by third parties. Time Warner has signed a two-year, $100 million deal with Snap, that will bring ten shows worth of original content to the social video App. This is just one of many agreements Snap has made, and the new Time Warner deal ensures that we could see HBO-related content on the platform as well. And finally, the FTC is moving to block of fantasy sports merger between between DraftKings and FanDuel, a marriage that would control more than 90% of the market. Along with Washington DC and California, the FTC will file a complaint in a federal district court to prevent the deal from happening, much to each company's chagrin.
