Paun Bischoff, editor of Comparitec said that this information has done a lot of work for spammers and cybercrimes, due to which he runs a fishing campaign. According to the researchers, behind the leaked data, a company named Deep Social has been banned, which in 2018 was banned after scraping the profiles of Facebook and Instagram users. However, Comparatech’s report said that Social Data has denied any connection with Deep Social. Comparatech reported that data marketing company Social Data closed the Unsecured data base after it was reported . Earlier this month, a hacker group named ShinyHunters had stolen the data of 38.6 million users of 18 companies. Believe the Bleeping Computer, Shiny Hunters uploaded this database to a forum from where anyone could download it for free.
