The Week in Dark Web – February 27, 2023 – Access Sales and Data Leaks

Powered by DarkMirror™

The most sophisticated attacks can be based on data put up for sale on the dark web by threat actors. A piece of simple information seemingly insignificant to an ordinary person can become a dangerous weapon for attackers. Since the actors in the cybercrime ecosystem know this very well, they regularly put the database up for sale on the dark web. Even if some of them are outdated, the clues they contain can be critical.

Last week, the most database sales were on our radar. Here are them and other notable posts.
