Massive unattributable data break Leaked Tens of Millions of Records

Recently, in the wake of a massive, non-dispersible invasion of privacy, the code name db8151dd has been used to identify the data of more than 22 million people, including addresses, phone numbers, usernames, passwords and links to social networks.

To this day, the source of this data is still a mystery and 90 GB of personal information has been stolen as a result of this violation.

According to reports, the 9to5Mac analyst received an email from haveibeenpwned.com that his personal information had been compromised and included email addresses, positions, phone numbers, addresses, and links to social media profiles.

Australian security expert Troy Hunt, founder and director of the Have I Been Pwned security blog, said in his blog that despite my own experience and expertise in the field, my own information was stolen and published in this issue.

Even some of my particularly sensitive information, such as my phone number, has been made public, and I have always tried to protect this information to keep it as confidential as possible.

That’s what Troy Hunt said: In February, Dehashed contacted me with a huge amount of data that had been left with a large cloud provider through a public copy of Elasticsearch. In total there were 103,150,616 lines, while the first 30 were similar to this line.

The global unique identifier that starts with db8151dd is strongly highlighted in these first lines, hence the name I gave to the offense. And I had to give him that name because, frankly, I have no idea where he comes from or who else I work for, said security expert Troy Hunt.

I’m trying to figure out the origin of a massive wound someone sent me. It looks a lot like a data aggregator, but I can’t place it. It’s from an IP address in the cloud, so there’s no indication. Do I have my own records? Has anyone seen any evidence pointing to the source? https://t.co/GHBoWN93Fy.

In addition to this data, Australian security expert Troy Hunt also found data about users with whom he had interacted in the past. He also referred to information relating to specific dates or reminders of future obligations as if this information came directly from personal agendas.

Research into the origin of the file leads nowhere, because Troy Hunt points out that much of this information comes directly from the CRM. As he explained, even when confronted with all the famous colleagues and journalists, he could not trace them with certainty.

There are also numerous legal summaries, such as the summary of the U.S. cases V CASEY CASEY SUMMARY. and a 20-minute delay in court on 3.10.11, plus travel time, divided by [Ed.

In addition, security researcher Troy Hunt has uploaded more than 20 million emails found in this file to HaveIBeenPwned to make sure you are not affected by the theft of sensitive data. Simply enter your email address on this website and it will automatically search extensive archives for previously stolen information or found data breaches and tell you if and where your personal information is located.

Let’s be clear: Troy Hunt also stated that the database only contains e-mail addresses, and that Have I been Pwned keeps nothing else.
