The scenario is highly reminiscent of the Ashley Madison hack last year.
During that data breach, the details of around 37 million users worldwide were compromised, with a number of people's usernames, login details and other credentials were posted online in protest at parent company Avid Life Media's account deletion process, which people paid for but failed to deliver on its promises.
Another possible mechanism could have been hijacking ssh keys from a compromised admin account or github, but those tend to be secondary in most cases.
Spear phishing becomes a lot easier when attackers not only have an email address, but also location, language, and race.
Networks, the parent company of those sites, has reportedly been hacked, resulting in the leak of of over 412 million accounts, according to Leaked Source (h/t to CSO).
For context of just how big this breach is, the Ashley Madison hack affected 32 million people.
Hackers reportedly breached Friend Finder Networks last month, and gained access to over 300 million accounts on Adult Friend Finder, which markets itself as the “World’s largest sex & swinger community.” The hack also exposed over 62 million accounts on Cams.com, a site for live webcam “sex chat,” over 7 million on Penthouse.com, over 1.4 million on Stripshow.com, over 1.1 million on i and a little over 35,000 on an “unknown domain.” Friend Finder’s network was reportedly hacked through a local file inclusion exploit, which enabled the hackers to access all of the network’s sites.
For now, Leaked Source says it will not make the data set searchable by the general public. For one, the company either stored user passwords in plaintext, without any protection, or hashed them using the notoriously weak SHA1 algorithm, according to Leaked Source.
