Gnosticplayers Returns for Round Five of Dumps

Gnosticplayers: The hacker who has gone by the moniker Gnosticplayers has returned with round five of their dumps.  This round of dumps contains 65.5 million new credentials which come from six different organizations.  The list of compromised organizations includes iCracked, Moda Operandi, Yanolja, Evite, Wanelo, and Mindjolt.  This brings Gnosticplayers’ total number of compromised credentials to 932 million credentials.  In an interview back in February, Ngosticplayers stated that they wished to make it to one billion compromised credentials.  This desire comes from watching the attention and fame gained by the hacker known as Peace, or Peace_of_mind, who gained notoriety for compromising 800 million accounts from services such as LinkedIn and Myspace.  Following the dumps made by Peace back in 2016, there was a significant spike in the success and frequency of credential stuffing attacks.

Analyst Notes

It is unlikely that we will see a different trend as more of Gnosticplayers dumps get released publicly by those who purchase them.
