The security researcher Brian Krebs is under continious attack by hackers and cybercriminals. This time hackers have claimed to have dumped the Krebsonsecurity.com database on Pastebin.

The passwords are encrypted and the only viewable information are the e-mail addresses which are used by users to login at the Krebsonsecurity.com website.

Brian Krebs has responded on Twitter and has explained that the leaked “pastebin” file is actually the database dump of RageBooter.
