Epik data leak appears to reveal domain sales

Ten days have passed since a massive data leak was speculated upon at Epik; the domain services company confirmed a variety of personal information that was leaked and has communicated a first line of response to its customers.

Even if the databases leaked on the internet are backdated to early 2021, that’s still a massive amount of data being perused by independent researchers and anyone with access to it.

One of them is security expert, Dave Troy, who has been analyzing the domain data found in the Epik database leak.

According to Dave Troy’s recent tweets, a table in one of the Epik databases appears to be listing monetary transactions for the sale or acquisition of domains, using the Epik escrow services.

The numbers below are transcribed from a photo Dave Troy posted:

  • Purchase of 795.com | 322605 | 11/1/2019
  • Purchase of 494.com | 292971.41 | 12/30/2019
  • Escrow purchase of 450.com | 279971.44 | 12/20/2019
  • 503.com purchase | 275000 | 10/25/2019
  • Epik Escrow Purchase Of 220.com | 275000
  • Sporting.com escrow deposit | 270000 | 6/5/2019

We can assume these are sales numbers in USD; the figures associated with the numeric (NNN) .com domains are consistent with the market value of similar domain sales, per NameBio.
