A hacker group going by the name of ShinyHunters claims to have breached ten companies and is currently selling their respective user databases on a dark web marketplace for illegal products.

The hackers are the same group who breached last week Tokopedia, Indonesia's largest online store. Hackers initially leaked 15 million user records online, for free, but later put the company's entire database of 91 million user records on sale for $5,000.

This includes user databases allegedly stolen from organizations such as:

  • Online dating app Zoosk (30 million user records)
  • Printing service Chatbooks (15 million user records)
  • South Korean fashion platform SocialShare (6 million user records)
  • Food delivery service Home Chef (8 million user records)
  • Online marketplace Minted (5 million user records)
  • Online newspaper Chronicle of Higher Education (3 million user records)
  • South Korean furniture magazine GGuMim (2 million user records)
  • Health magazine Mindful (2 million user records)
  • Indonesia online store Bhinneka (1.2 million user records)
  • US newspaper StarTribune (1 million user records)
Microsoft's GitHub account hacked, private repositories stolen
