What is Exactis and how could it have leaked the data of nearly every American?

A security researcher discovered what he described as a breach earlier this month. The records exposed comprise nearly two terabytes of data, according to a report from Wired. The data in question does not include payment information or Social Security numbers but does include email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers as well as other personal information like habits, hobbies and the number, ages, and genders of the person’s children. A class action lawsuit against Exactis alleges the firm failed to take adequate steps to protect millions of Americans from data breaches.
