Continuous Increase of Hacked Databases Offered On The Dark Web

The adversary called ‘thedarkoverlord’ operating on ‘TheRealDeal’ market is offering to sell copies of hacked US and UK health services. The database dumps contain between 41,000 and 220,000 unique personal records and medical records.

The purchase price ranges from 150BTC to 607BTC (BitCoin) ($395,000). This is a continuation of a trend that medical systems are being actively targeted because of their sensitive data and relatively poor protection.

LinkedIn Data Leak

Everyone has most likely already heard about the recent leak of the 6.5 million LinkedIn passwords. Although the information dates back to 2012, Intelliagg has found the leaked source files and has determined that 30% of the leaked passwords are still valid. LinkedIn is a professional social networking platform, which links people to their past and current employers and both personal and professional contacts.

This creates a greater risk to your business, as employees in most cases enable the launch point for an external intrusion. In addition to addressing the need for password changes, businesses should make their employees aware of the increased risks of social engineering attacks through use of the users contact base and known interests. Your employees also need to be on alert for brand jacked email notifications, which include links to Blackhole exploit kits – users should only accept invitations via the Linkedin application, rather than click on notification links sent via email.
