OGUsers, an online cybercrime forum known for selling account credentials, was hacked by attackers. The forum was breached on May 12 in what was at first reported as a case of an outage.
In addition to causing the outage, attackers also stole user data in the breach. Compromised data includes usernames, email addresses, hashed passwords, private messages, and IP addresses.
A close look
Competitor forum spills the data
As mentioned earlier, the hacking community RaidForums put up the data of OGUsers for free on its forum.
“I have uploaded the data from this database breach along with their website source files. Their hashing algorithm was the default salted MD5 which surprised me, anyway the website owner has acknowledged data corruption but not a breach so I guess I’m the first to tell you the truth. According to his statement he didn’t have any recent backups so I guess I will provide one on this thread lmfao,” read the message by RaidForums’ administrator Omnipresent.
