Hacker is selling 93 million user records from eight companies, including GfyCat

A hacker going by the name of Gnosticplayers has put up for sale another set of hacked databases on a Dark Web marketplace.

This is the third round of hacked databases the hacker has published on the Dark Web marketplace known as Dream Market. He previously posted a batch of 16 databases containing the data of 620 million users and a second batch of eight databases with the data of 127 million users.

Today, the hacker published eight more hacked DBs containing data for 92.76 million users. The biggest name in today’s batch is GfyCat, the famous GIF hosting and sharing platform. The hacker is selling each database individually on Dream Market. Together, all eight are worth 2.6249 bitcoin, which amounts to roughly $9,400.

In an interview with ZDNet on Friday, Gnosticplayers took credit for the hacks and denied being just an intermediary.

The hacker says he intends to sell over one billion user records and then disappear with the money. His current total stands at roughly 840 million records.

“My two main goals are: -money -downfall of American pigs,” he told us.

New leaks are coming, including one from a cryptocurrency exchange, the hacker told ZDNet.
