620 million accounts stolen from 16 hacked websites now for sale on dark web, seller boasts

Some 617 million online account details stolen from 16 hacked websites are on sale from today on the dark web, according the data trove's seller.

 

For less than $20,000 in Bitcoin, it is claimed, the following pilfered account databases can be purchased from the Dream Market cyber-souk, located in the Tor network:

Dubsmash (162 million), MyFitnessPal (151 million), MyHeritage (92 million), ShareThis (41 million), HauteLook (28 million), Animoto (25 million), EyeEm (22 million), 8fit (20 million), Whitepages (18 million), Fotolog (16 million), 500px (15 million), Armor Games (11 million), BookMate (8 million), CoffeeMeetsBagel (6 million), Artsy (1 million), and DataCamp (700,000).

 

Some of the websites – particularly MyHeritage, MyFitnessPal, and Animoto – were known to have been hacked as they warned their customers last year that they had been compromised, whereas the others are seemingly newly disclosed security breaches. In other words, this is the first time we've heard these other sites have been allegedly hacked. This also marks the first time this data, for all of the listed sites, has been peddled publicly, again if all the sellers' claims are true.

My, my. Look at all the trouble I *didn't* get into, because I'm an old dinosaur
and don't join every new social media site that comes along. (Actually, I have
*heard* of Artsy, via my wife, who doesn't have an account there, but does know
of some craftspeople who do ...)

And then we have P. D. Eastman's great tragic classic, `Are You
My Mother?' Our protagonist struggles greatly with the issues of
his own identity, and the identity of those around him.
Abandoned before birth, alone in a hostile world, his first
independent action almost fatal, he searches desperately,
receiving no help from anyone he encounters. Eventually his
relationships become completely mechanical. At the end of the
tale he has accomplished nothing, having returned to precisely
the point at which he started. And yet there is something
poignant, and, perhaps, even noble, in the dogged determination
captured in the one famous line of the book,
`And the baby bird went *on*.'

When will we ever learn?

 

Funding the dark forces in their criminal activities?
