FBI seizes credentials-for-sale site WeLeakInfo.com – Naked Security


The FBI has seized the domain for WeLeakInfo.com, a site that sold breached data records, after a multinational effort by law enforcement.

Authorities have arrested two 22-year-old men alleged to have operated the site. Based in Fintona, Northern Ireland, and Arnhem in the Netherlands, they are believed to have made over £200,000 (about $260,000) between them from the site.

The Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine first shows WeLeakInfo.com surfacing in April 2017, advertising itself as “the Most Extensive Private Database Search Engine”.

The FBI and the District of Columbia explained that the site had harvested over 12 billion records from over 10,000 data breaches, including names, email addresses, usernames, phone numbers, and passwords. The site disclosed records relating to data breaches of sites including Chegg.com, StockX, Dubsmash, and MyFitnessPal.

Customers could subscribe to WeLeakInfo.com for as little as a day, paying a minimum of $2 in return for unlimited access. UK authorities also found links between the site and sales of remote access trojans (RATs) and cryptors (tools that obfuscate malware code to avoid detection). It was available both online and also via the dark web service Tor.
