REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Member of the General Election Commission (KPU) of RI, Idham Holik stated that the process of printing copies of the Permanent Voter Register (DPT) for the 2024 election was not disturbed by the issue of alleged leakage of voter data in the KPU's system. The State Cyber and Password Agency (BSSN) has also carried out digital forensics related to the issue of voter data leakage.

“In the interest of printing voter data for voting, in safe and uninterrupted conditions,” Idham said in an online discussion in Jakarta, Saturday (2/12/2023). Regarding the alleged leak of voter data, Idham has not been able to confirm in detail, including whether it is related to the 2024 concurrent election or voter data from previous elections. “We can't be sure (about the data leak) yet. At present, the KPU's information system cybersecurity task force is still working,” he added.

He also has not been able to confirm when the results of those searches or digital forensics will be delivered to the public. “Yes, in principle, (if the search) is completed, we will make it public,” he said.

Meanwhile, the State Cyber and Password Agency (BSSN) has conducted digital forensics as a handling step in suspected data leakage cases experienced by the Commission. BSSN did that to look for the cause of the alleged data leak.

“In handling the cyber incident that occurred in KPU, BSSN is conducting analysis and digital forensics from the application and server side to find out the root couse of the cyber incident that occurred,” BSSN Spokesperson Ariandi Putra said in Jakarta, Friday (1/12/2023).

The follow-up to the handling of the alleged data leak will be submitted directly by the Commission as the owner of the electronic system. The alleged leak of voter data at the Commission came after it emerged an anonymous hacker named “Jimbo” claimed to have hacked the Commission's website and accessed voter data from the site.

The account shared 500 thousand sample data in a single upload on the BreachForums site. Such sites are usually used to sell hacked data. Jimbo also verified the veracity of the data with some screenshots from the website. In his upload, Jimbo revealed that out of 252 million data he obtained, there was some duplicated data.

After filtering, 204,807,203 unique data were found. The number is almost the same as the number of voters in the Permanent Voter List (DPT) of the KPU which reached 204,807,222 voters from 514 districts and cities in Indonesia as well as 128 representative countries.

The data Jimbo managed to access includes personal information, such as NIK, KK number, ID number, passport number of voters abroad, full name, gender, date of birth, place of birth, marriage status, full address, and polling station code.
