Hacker selling data of 538 million Weibo users

The personal details of more than 538 million users of Chinese social network Weibo are currently available for sale online, according to ads seen by ZDNet and corroborating reports from Chinese media.

In ads posted on the dark web and other places, a hacker claims to have breached Weibo in mid-2019 and obtained a dump of the company’s user database.

The database allegedly contains the details for 538 million Weibo users. Personal details include the likes of real names, site usernames, gender, location, and — for 172 million users — phone numbers.

Passwords were not included, which explains why the hacker is selling the Weibo data for only ¥1,799 ($250).
