Over 21 million login credentials from Fortune 500 companies have been found on the dark web for sale. Many of them have already been cracked and available in plaintext form. This information was compiled by crawling multiple sources, such as the Tor network, web forums, PasteBin, IRC channels, social networks, and messenger chats. Not all of the login credentials are fresh though. A report published by ImmuniWeb stated that over 16 million were compromised in the last 12 months. However, the researchers reveal a worrying statistic: “95% of the credentials contained unencrypted, or brute-forced and cracked by the attackers, plaintext passwords.” More information on this report can be found here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/21-million-logins-for-top-500-firms-offered-on-the-dark-web/
