A hacker has leaked online today the database of Daniel’s Hosting (DH), the largest free web hosting provider for dark web services.
The leaked data was obtained after the hacker breached DH earlier this year, on March 10, 2020. At the time, DH owner Daniel Winzen told ZDNet the hacker breached his portal, stole its database, and then wiped all servers.
On March 26, two weeks after the breach, DH shut down its service for good, urging users to move their sites to new dark web hosting providers. Around 7,600 websites — a third of all dark web portals — went down following DH’s shutdown.
