LiveAuctioneers, a worldwide auction site, disclosed a data breach after a breach broker started selling 3.4 million stolen user records online. The data is claimed to contain email addresses, usernames, MD5 hashed passwords, names, phone numbers, physical addresses, IP addresses, and social media profiles. BleepingComputer was informed by the data broker that the database is being sold for $2500. It is also claimed that about three million of the passwords have been decrypted, which is included in the sale. LiveAuctioneers stated that the data was stolen from a third-party data processing company, credit card information was not included in the breach, and that bidding history was not likely affected.
