More than 470,000 users of hacking website Nulled had their account details, including e-mail addresses and private messages, leaked.
The website is a marketplace where users can purchase stolen account details. RiskBased Security says that this leak includes more than 5,000 purchase records of stolen info, usernames, IP addresses, and PayPal account information.
Nulled has been taken offline, stating that it’s undergoing “routine maintenance.”
The irony of the situation hasn’t gone unnoticed. "Considering this forum promotes the sharing of these activities, it makes this breach quite ironic,” RiskBased Security said.
The firm says that the data released could be used to identify members of the site if they weren’t careful in protecting it. Naturally, law enforcement officers will be very interested in this leaked information.
