Data breach broker selling user records stolen from 26 companies

A data breach broker is selling the allegedly stolen user records for twenty-six companies on a hacker forum, BleepingComputer has learned.

When threat actors and hacking groups breach a company and steal their user databases, they commonly work with data breach brokers who market and sell the data for them. Brokers will then create posts on hacker forums and dark web marketplaces to market the stolen data.

Last Friday, a data broker began selling the combined total of 368.8 million stolen user records for twenty-six companies on a hacker forum.

Of these twenty-six companies, only eight are new alleged data breaches that have not been previously disclosed. These seven companies are Teespring.com, MyON.com, Chqbook.com, Anyvan.com,
Eventials.com, Wahoofitness.com, Sitepoint.com, and ClickIndia.com.

In a conversation with the data broker, BleepingComputer was told that Teespring is being sold for $3,800-$4,000, MyON for $2,800, and Chqbook for $1,800. The broker has not decided on pricing for the other databases.
