Data breach - Email Provider

enter image description here The data of more than 600,000 Email.it users is currently being sold on the dark web.

The hackers claim the databases contain plain text passwords, security questions, email content, and email attachments for more than 600,000 users who signed up and used the service between 2007 to 2020. The Email.it hack came to light on Sunday, when the hackers went on Twitter to promote a website on the dark web where they were selling the company's data.

The hackers -- going by the name of NN (No Name) Hacking Group -- claim the actual intrusion took place more than two years ago, in January 2018. We cite from their website:

We breached Email.it Datacenter more than 2 years ago and we plant ourself like an APT. We took any possible sensitive data from their server and after we choosen to give them a chance to patch their holes asking for a little bounty. They refused to talk with us and continued to trick their users/customers. They didn't contacted their users/customers after breaches!
