Millions of passwords leaked by hacked webshop

Webshop Allekabels has leaked private data and passwords of millions of Dutch people. It may be the largest password data breach in the Netherlands ever.

Allekabels’ stolen database, containing the private data of some 3.6 million people, was put up for sale on a hacker forum at the end of January for a sum of 15,000 euros. Audio and computer cables are available for purchase via Allekabels, as well as suspension brackets and antennas.

RTL Nieuws has viewed and verified the stolen data.

This totals some 2.6 million unique email addresses linked to names, home addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth and encrypted passwords.

At least 109,000 IBAN numbers of Allekabels customers were also stolen and traded.
