Right now, anyone can go on the dark web and purchase the account data of 617 million people across 16 different websites for less than $20,000. This account data includes birthdays, email addresses, full names, and hashed passwords.
Data breaches seem to happen all the time, and we’ve kind of gotten used to it. If you’ve never been affected by a breach, then they can be easy to ignore. But 16 websites have been compromised at once. This would be a good time to pay attention to a data breach.
As reported by The Register, here are the 16 sites that have been affected:
Dubsmash (162 million), MyFitnessPal (151 million), MyHeritage (92 million), ShareThis (41 million), HauteLook (28 million), Animoto (25 million), EyeEm (22 million), 8fit (20 million), Whitepages (18 million), Fotolog (16 million), 500px (15 million), Armor Games…
