- ShinyHunters has been involved in or responsible for a wide assortment of data breaches this past year, including Wattpad, Dave, Chatbooks, Promo.com, Mathway, HomeChef, and the breach of Microsoft private GitHub repository.
- Databases stolen in data breaches usually are privately sold first, with prices ranging between $500 (Zoosk) to $100,000 (Wattpad).
- Once they are no longer profitable, threat actors commonly release them on hacker forums to increase their community reputation.
