Tumblr users’ login credentials on dark web

tumblrThe same person “peace_of_mind” who offered LinkedIn users’ data for sale recently has offered 65 million email addresses along with hashed and salted passwords of Tumblr users for sale on the dark web.

Earlier this month, Tumblr had issued a breach warning to its users: “We recently learned that a third party had obtained access to a set of Tumblr user email addresses with salted and hashed passwords from early 2013, prior to the acquisition of Tumblr by Yahoo. As soon as we became aware of this, our security team thoroughly investigated the matter. Our analysis gives us no reason to believe that this information was used to access Tumblr accounts. As a precaution, however, we will be requiring affected Tumblr users to set a new password,”

Peace is offering the data for less than half a bitcoin, which is around $150.
