RaidForums is a black market hacker site that was once a marketplace for hackers to buy and sell stolen information conveniently. This site was taken down because of government involvement, but some of the members of this site may be exposed by a recent data breach putting their information up online for all to see. If you joined the site at the right time, your data will be included in the online database of members on the dark website.
Attackers broke into RaidForums data files and began accessing member information. One of the site admins leaked data about anyone that registered between March 20, 2015, and September 24, 2020. If you registered to RaidForums during that period, it may be released that you had an active account on the website.
The data breach occurred on May 29, 2023. At that time, one of the site admins announced that membership information was posted online in a database and that it was freely available.
This RaidForums data breach impacts anyone that registered to the site between March 20, 2015, and September 24, 2020. If you created an account with the site during that period, you may be exposed to the recent breach.
There is no word about how many files were uploaded during the RaidForums data breach. We do know that approximately 478,870 individuals registered for accounts during the period of time that's set to be exposed. If you registered during that time, your information may be put up online for others to see. There is little that can be done about this breach because the information shared isn't personal enough to open members up to an identity theft attack.
