Cybersecurity firm Group-IB has confirmed the leak of the database of the newly initiated online platform, BreachForums. In a recent announcement, Group-IB verified the authenticity of the data leak, indicating that the information circulating is indeed genuine.
Interestingly, responsibility for the data breach was claimed by a rival platform,
Exposed[.]vc. The motives behind this cyberattack remain unclear, although competition between these forums is suspected to be a key factor.
Following the incident, both platforms,
Exposed[.]vc, are currently offline, leaving users and observers with more questions than answers. This incident underscores the ever-growing complexity and persistence of cyber threats, even amongst competing platforms in the cybersecurity domain.
