ShinyHunters Offers Stolen Data on Dark Web

The threat actor offers more than 26 million records from a series of data breaches.

Dave.com, a mobile banking company, announced on Friday that a hacker had exfiltrated data on more than 7.5 million users. While the company says that the hacker's point of entry has been closed, the data has since been offered — free to paid users — on a hacking forum.

The group or individual responsible for the attack is a data broker known as ShinyHunters. The threat actor has offered the Dave.com data in a dump that includes real names, phone numbers, emails, birth dates, and home addresses in cleartext along with encrypted or hashed versions of Social Security numbers and passwords.

In addition, ShinyHunters is now offering data from a number of breaches on the same forum. The additional breaches and the number of records involved include:

  • Vakina.com.br — 4.8 million records
  • Truefire.com — 600,000 records
  • Havenly.com — 1.3 million records
  • Drizly.com d — 2.4 million records
  • Proctoru.com — 444,000 records
  • Scentbird.com — 5.8 million records
  • Appen.com — 5.8 million (suffered breach in 2017)
  • Homechef.com — 8 million records
  • Chatbooks.com — 15 million records

In total, more than 26 million records are now being offered at rates of $1,500 to $2,500 for each database.

Stolen Data is a Business of Its Own
Stolen data is big business. Its not surprising to see it developing its own pricing model similar to how corporations price a product.
