Alien Market, which is a very serious darkweb marketplace, has been hacked.
Someone has hacked Alien Market and dumped the database containing the usernames and passwords of registered users.
The darknet market link distribution site Dark Eye has changed the status of Alien Market to “the market has been hacked and the database leaked.”
From a guy in the comments:
“Not allegedly. And not someone, multiple people have over the past months. The credentials obviously work, nearly every parameter was vulnerable to SQL injections and the passwords were saved in cleartext. The server also holds a git repository with material, which could possibly lead to the market admins identity. It was an absolute shit hole. I posted about the vulnerability months ago on Dread, took long enough for someone to leak it. Looking at the market, this shouldn’t be the most shocking part. Trying the same credentials from both customers and vendors on Dread and other markets is scary though. You can also tell by the looking at the passwords, that they are all being reused.”
The login information for Alien Market “vendors” appear in the text file containing dumped usernames, passwords, and withdrawal pins. Someone has tested many of the logins, and they purportedly work.
Some believe this market is a scam!
