The hacker who goes by the name “Peace” or “Peace_of_Mind” has uploaded 200 Million Yahoo! credentials up for sale on an underground marketplace called The Real Deal. I hope you remember this hackers, the same hacker who was responsible for selling data dumps for LinkedIn, MySpace, Tumblr and VK.com on the dark web.
In a brief description, Peace says the Yahoo! database “most likely” comes from 2012, the same year when Marissa Mayer became Yahoo’s CEO.
Peace has put up the data for 3 Bitcoin (approximately ~$1,800). The leaked database includes usernames, MD5-hashed passwords and date of births from 200 Million Yahoo! Users. Since the passwords are MD5-encrypted, hackers could easily decrypt them using an MD5 decrypter available online, making it’s users open to hackers.
