Chinese domain investors : 1 billion accounts leaked on the Dark Web


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, and Tencent Holdings Limited owned, TOM Group’s, Sina Corporation’s, Sohu, Inc.’s and Letter Network Information Technology Co., Ltd owned”

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.
