Have you ever used Gatehub, Epicbot or GPS Underground?
GateHub - 1,408,078 breached accounts
In October 2019, 1.4M accounts from the cryptocurrency wallet service GateHub were posted to a popular hacking forum. GateHub had previously acknowledged a data breach in June, albeit with a smaller number of impacted accounts. Data from the breach included email addresses, mnemonic phrases, wallet hashes and passwords stored as bcrypt hashes.
EpicBot - 816,662 breached accounts
In September 2019, the RuneScape bot provider EpicBot suffered a data breach that impacted 817k subscribers. Data from the breach was subsequently shared on a popular hacking forum and included usernames, email and IP addresses and passwords stored as either salted MD5 or bcrypt hashes. EpicBot did not respond when contacted about the incident.
GPS Underground - 669,584 breached accounts
In early 2017, GPS Underground was amongst a collection of compromised vBulletin websites that were found being sold online. The breach dated back to mid-2016 and included 670k records with usernames, email and IP addresses, dates of birth and salted MD5 password hashes.
Please take the following actions if you have ever used these services:
1. Change your password right away and never use the same password twice (see my article on credential stuffing below)
2. Send an email to them and let them know that you are aware of the breach and ask them to provide you with Identity protection and credit Monitoring services.
Please let me know if you need any help in relation to this.
