Last week, Hack Hex received an email from a Pakistani hacker who claims to have hacked dozens of popular websites and selling their stolen databases online.
During an interview with Hack Hex, the hacker also claimed that many targeted companies have probably no idea that they have been compromised and that their customers’ data have already been sold to multiple cyber criminal groups and individuals.
