List of data breaches and cyber attacks in July 2017 – 143 million records leaked

The DEFCON conference begins in Las Vegas today, and roughly 18,000 security researchers, IT professionals and hacking enthusiasts are expected to attend, so now feels like as appropriate a time as any to list this month’s data breaches and cyber attacks.

This month’s list is rather short, but I calculate the number of known leaked records in the month to be 143,072,758. As always, remember that this number represents events that became apparent, not necessarily those that took place, this month.

Did I miss anything? Let me know.
