Directnic

Domain investors from China should perform a thorough change of passwords across their social media accounts without delay.

Details of more than 1 billion accounts from large Chinese service providers have been packaged and are being resold on the so-called “Dark Web,” an underground group of sites operating on the Tor network.

According to a report on the compromised Chinese web sites, the leak includes:

“NetEase Inc and its subsidiaries 126.com, 163.com and Yeah.net. Tencent Holdings Limited owned QQ.com, TOM Group’s Tom.com 163.net, Sina Corporation’s Sina.com/Sina.com.cn, Sohu, Inc.’s Sohu.com and Letter Network Information Technology Co., Ltd owned eYou.com.”

The packaging of this massive account credentials is being sold for $400 dollars, by a notorious seller of other stolen account credentials.

Sharing the same password across multiple accounts can lead to their easy compromise from such leaked data; domain investors should always enable two factor authentication to protect their registrar accounts.

    Does the $400 include a side of fried rice?

    Jeff – Double fried, most likely. The magnitude of the leak is insane.
