After the breach of MyFitnessPal last year involving 150M user accounts, the data has finally been packaged up along with stolen credentials from 15 other websites to be sold on the Dark Web. The asking price? Less than $20,000 in Bitcoin.
Other websites included are CoffeeMeetsBagel, Dubsmash, MyHeritage, ShareThis, HauteLook, Animoto, EyeEm, 8fit, Whitepages, Fotolog, 500px, Armor Games, BookMate, Artsy, and DataCamp. In total, 617 million compromised records are involved.
Cybercriminals can combine such databases to find users who are recycling passwords across multiple sites, allowing them to hack into valuable accounts that can be leveraged for fraud. By investing in solutions that can consistently monitor the Dark Web, companies can quickly understand how hackers are planning to use exposed information and implement cybersecurity safeguards.
