An infamous cybercriminal who goes by the name of Peace is advertising 200 million supposed Yahoo user credentials on the Dark Web. The same hacker has previously sold Linkedln and Myspace user data on The Real Deal marketplace in the shady underworld of the Dark Web.
The data includes birthdates, usernames, passwords and in some cases the back-up email used for the account.
According to Peace, the data is from “2012 most likely,” and is asking 3 Bitcoins (about $1,800), for the data. Yahoo said it is aware of the claim, but would give no further details.
Peace also said he has been trading the data privately for some time now, and only publicly listed it on the Dark Web on Monday.
