Personal Data Of 400M Twitter Users Including Sundar Pichai, Actor Salman Khan Up For Sale On Dark Web

Right now, Twitter is probably dealing with its biggest leak.

A hacker claimed to have stolen the data of 40 crores Twitter users and sold it on the dark web, according to a report by the Israeli cyber intelligence firm Hudson Rock.

Bollywood actor Salman Khan, India’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and others had their data stolen.

According to the Hudson Rock report, 40 crores of Twitter users’ data is available on Dark Web.

Data including email addresses, usernames, followers, and even phone numbers.

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

Furthermore, The Irish Data Protection Commission is investigating the previous leak.

The hacker allegedly offered a deal to Twitter CEO Elon Musk and wrote in their 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.

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