More than 100 thousand hackers suffered from the actions of fraudsters
Experts have analyzed more than a hundred hacker forums by examining various databases and logs of malware published by attackers.
Hudson Rock, a cybersecurity and cybercrime detection company, has released a report on identity leaks. More than 100 thousand hackers suffered from the actions of fraudsters. Their logins, passwords from thematic forums were in the public domain.
It turned out that fraudsters often victimize not only ordinary users, but also various hackers. For example, over 57,000 compromised accounts belonged to members of the Nulled forum, which is dedicated to discussing methods of hacking other people's computers.
E-mail addresses, user and computer names, as well as IP addresses and phone numbers were in the public domain. Experts noted that, in general, passwords from such forums are more secure than the average combinations used on other websites.
Experts attribute the massive data leakage to the low qualification of hackers and poor knowledge of computer security.
