    Cybercrime Forum that steals data suffers from an ironic data breach

    A cybercrime forum is making the rounds lately. The internet is full of news about data breaches and personal information sold in dark web forums. However, cybercriminals are also not protected from the same threat.

    What happened

    The WeLeakData[.]Com hacker forum was reported missing in January this year, indicating that it has been linked to an FBI hijacking of a similar website, WeLeakInfo[.]Com.

     

    Although this relationship has not yet been confirmed. Immediately after WeLeakData became offline, another site, leaksmarket[.]Com, appeared with the same data.

    The situation

    The data breach was confirmed by Cyble when WeLeakData[.]Com was auctioned in April.

     

    The database for sale included email addresses, IP addresses, usernames, and hash passwords of account holders, as well as private messages between members of the group.

    What experts say

    • The owner of the compromised website is not available and does not respond.
    • The owner of WeLeakData has been reportedly arrested in connection with Europol’s recent escape.
    • Several cybercrime forum said this crackdown has thwarted their activities.

    Worth noting

    The full database of the breached site can be found here.

    This is not the first time that the Cybercrime forum has been deleted. LeakedSource was burst in 2016 while a Canadian citizen was arrested. A year later, a site LeakBase[.]Pw suddenly disappeared.

    In essence

    This is one of the most interesting events in the cybercrime market since WeLeakData is offline. The irony is that the data thieves were at the receiving end.
