Hacker who stole 620 million records strikes again, stealing 127 million more

A hacker who stole close to 620 million user records from 16 websites has stolen another 127 million records from eight more websites, TechCrunch has learned.
The hacker, whose listing was the previously disclosed data for about $20,000 in bitcoin on a dark web marketplace, stole the data last year from several major sites some that had already been disclosed, like more than 151 million records from MyFitnessPal and 25 million records from Animoto. But several other hacked sites on the marketplace listing didnt know or hadnt disclosed yet such as 500px and Coffee Meets Bagel.
The Register, which first reported the story, said the data included names, email addresses and scrambled passwords, and in some cases other login and account data though no financial data was included.
Now the same hacker has eight additional marketplace entries after their original listings were pulled offline, including:



18 million records from travel booking site Ixigo




Live-video streaming site YouNow had 40 million records stolen




Houzz, which recently disclosed a data breach, is listed with 57 million records stolen




Ge.tt had 1.8 million accounts stolen




450,000 records from cryptocurrency site Coinmama.




Roll20, a gaming site, had 4 million records listed




Stronghold Kingdoms, a multiplayer online game, had 5 million records listed




1 million records from pet care delivery service PetFlow



According to the hackers listings, Ixigo and PetFlow used the old and outdated MD5 hashing algorithm to scramble passwords, which these days is easy to unscramble. YouNow doesnt store passwords, a spokesperson said.
In all, the hacker is selling the hacked data for about $14,500 in bitcoin.
