Around 500 million LinkedIn user data, estimated to have been stolen at different times, went up for sale. The hacker states that he is open to offers in the form of x000 $.
Credentials leaked from social networks or important platforms are now becoming an important source of income for cyber attackers. These packages are important for other attackers who try to infiltrate users’ accounts using their credentials or spam advertisements. This creates an important trade.
500 million LinkedIn accounts on sale
To date, the biggest data leak is thought to be in Yahoo, with a total of 1.5 billion. Next comes Facebook with nearly 1 billion data. The world’s largest corporate network LinkedIn has also leaked data from more than 500 million people.
500 million accounts have been stolen from the LinkedIn platform to date, the largest being in 2012, and are now sold to enthusiasts in bundles. To prove the package that emerged on a black market forum, the hacker promoted a 2 million data package at $ 2.
It is not known how much of the accounts are current and how old it is, but it would not be wrong to say that each data will be tested for leakage on different platforms, based on the assumption that people generally use similar passwords on social networks. The hacker also states that he is open to offers in the form of x000 $.
