The data of all Filipino voters has been hacked ahead of general election.

A massive leak from a database containing personal details of more than 55 million registered voters in the Philippines will not compromise the May 9 national elections, officials said Friday, in the latest hacking scandal to hit the Southeast Asian nation.

Government agents late Wednesday arrested a 23-year-old suspect, a new graduate of information technology, in his home in Manila. Officials said they are hunting down his alleged accomplices.

Commission on Election spokesman James Jiménez said the automated elections will be run on a different server, not on the one that was hacked, and that experts say the polls are unlikely to be compromised.

The leaked data include voters’ names, birthdays, home addresses, email, parents’ full names and in some cases passport details and text markers of fingerprints.
