Panama Papers are the World’s Largest Leak Ever

2.6 terabytes

“The Panama Papers is the largest leak in history. At 2.6 terabytes, it’s on a scale never seen before — over 1,000-fold bigger than Wikileaks’ Cablegate scandal. The 11.5 million records from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca reveal an opaque system where billionaires, smugglers, and fraudsters hide their money for reasons both legitimate and criminal,” reports World Policy Journal.
