Millions of Stolen Accounts From Multiple Websites for Sale on the Dark Web
Millions of online accounts from sixteen hacked websites are now up for sale on the Dark Web. Some US-based websites include Animoto, Artsy, and Armor Games, and Whitepages. Most data consists of names, email addresses, and hashed passwords, and many of the websites have notified their users of the breach. It is important for affected users to change their passwords, use strong and unique passwords for every account, and enable multi-factor authentication where available to protect against credential stuffing attacks. More information on these breaches can be found on The Register’s blog post.
