Hacker puts 400mn Twitter users data for sale, invites Musk for negotiation  | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

In the newest addition of ongoing “Twitter Saga”  a new data breach incident has been reported by the Israeli cyber intelligence company Hudson Rock.

Nearly 400 million Twitter users’ personal information allegedly was hacked and sold on the dark web by a hacker, according to Hudson Rock.

The stolen data has a staggering quantity of data, including the emails and phone numbers of prominent users.

The data hacker, who now wants to sell the data,  claims that they were obtained by taking advantage of a vulnerability. The hacker is a member of  Ryushi, a data breach forum.

Hudson Rock has posted images of the Twitter post where the hacker disclosed details about the data theft.

WHO, the Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and American artist Charlie Puth are all mentioned in the leaked material. However, the hacker declared himself willing to work with any middleman.

“I am selling data of +400 million unique Twitter users that was scrapped via a vulnerability, this data is completely private,” the hacker wrote in his post.

“Twitter or Elon Musk, if you are reading this post, you are already at risk of GDPR fines for the data leak of over 54 million users. Now fines for data leak of 400 million users,” said the hacker.

“Your best option to avoid paying $2.76 million in CDPR breach fines like Facebook did (due to 533 million users being scrapped) is to buy this data exclusively,” it added.

In addition, he said, “I will remove this thread and will not sell this information again.”

This massive data breach information was released shortly after the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) began an inquiry into a Twitter data leak that impacted more than 5.4 million users globally.

According to a report by Bleeping Computer, the prior breach was discovered in late November, and data was obtained when hackers took advantage of an API flaw that Twitter rectified in January.
