“As dark web specialists at RepKnight, we were able to track down the identities of some of those affected using our sophisticated monitoring tools.  Their phone numbers and email addresses are being offered for sale on the Dark Web, at $10 a time.

“The attack just goes to show the growing threat of the Dark Web. If you’ve been hacked and someone’s posted your contact details on a site that Google cannot reach, you’re highly unlikely to ever understand the severity of that hack.
