A hacker claims to have stolen credentials to a bunch of US government sites — and he’s selling them on the dark web
A hacker is selling stolen credentials that purportedly give access to servers of the US Navy, Centers for Disease Control, US Postal Service, and other US government sites.
Listings for the accounts were found recently by Tech Insider on a dark web marketplace called The Real Deal, a popular site many cyber criminals use for buying and selling everything from illegal drugs to zero-day software exploits. It’s unclear when the postings were made, since the site offers no dates for when sellers create their listings.
