Hacker leaks data for U.S. gun exchange site on cybercrime forum

A hacker has released the databases of Utah-based gun exchange, hunting, and kratom sites for free on a cybercrime forum.

On August 10th, a threat actor posted databases that they claim contain 195,000 user records for the utahgunexchange.com, 45,000 records for their video site, 15,000 records from the hunting site muleyfreak.com, and 24,000 user records from the Kratom site deepjunglekratom.com.

All of these sites are based out of Utah, USA and samples of the databases shared by cybersecurity intelligence firm Cyble show that each database was hosted on the same Amazon AWS server 

The latest date on user records in each database is July 16th, which indicates that is when the data was stolen.

The exposed data is different on each site, but consists of email addresses, login names, and hashed passwords. 

BleepingComputer has attempted to contact all three sites to confirm and alert them of the breach, but have not received a response.
They were able to confirm that many of the email addresses listed in the databases belong to registered users of the sites.
While this does not provide 100% verification of posted data, it does lead them to believe that there was a breach of some kind.
