File With 1.4 Billion Hacked And Leaked Passwords Found On The Dark Web. Lee Mathews)
While scanning the deep and dark web for stolen, leaked or lost data, 4iQ discovered a single file with a database of 1.4 billion clear text credentials — the largest aggregate database found in the dark web to date.
The 41GB dump was found on 5th December 2017 in an underground community forum. The database was recently updated with the last set of data inserted on 11/29/2017. The total amount of credentials (usernames/clear text password pairs) is 1,400,553,869.
We’ve found that although the majority of these breaches are known within the Breach and Hacker community, 14% of exposed username/passwords pairs had not previously been decrypted by the community and are now available in clear text.

One list, known as the “Anti Public Combo List“, contains 457,962,538 distinct email addresses, and although HIBP creator Troy Hunt, who first reported the discovery of the lists last Friday, has so far been unable to trace the source of the data, he believes it comes from multiple breaches rather than a single event.

On Friday, Twitter user Chris Vickery teased world plus dog that he was going public on Monday with news of a massive data breach of 1.37 billion records. And that turned out to be as many as 1.37 billion contact details amassed by River City Media (RCM) – an internet marketing biz apparently based in Jackson, Wyoming, that claims to emit up to a billion emails a day.
The 200GB table includes real names, email addresses, IP addresses, and “often” physical addresses, it is claimed. Vickery said he “stumbled upon a suspicious, yet publicly exposed, collection of files,” and discovered the database and documents related to RCM. Among the millions and millions of contact details were chat logs and files exposing the sprawling RCM empire. It turns out the spamming, er, marketing biz has many tentacles and affiliates, mostly acting as web service providers and advertising operations.

I get a lot of requests from people for data from Have I been pwned (HIBP) that they can analyse. Now obviously, there are a bunch of people up to no good requesting the data but equally, there are many others who just want to run statistics. Regardless, the answer has always been “no”, I’m not going to redistribute data to you. In fact, the requests were happening so frequently that I even wrote the blog post No, I cannot share data breaches with you.
However, as part of HIBP’s 3rd birthday celebrations, I am going to share data with you, quite a lot of it. In fact, I’m opening up almost all the data in HIBP with a few very important caveats: (Here’s 1.4 billion records from Have I been pwned for you to analyse. 06 DECEMBER 2016 troyhunt.com
