The video site, DailyMotion, has been dropped, resulting in 85 million user accounts being stolen.
The DailyMotion video sharing website, which is one of the largest video sharing and webcasting platforms, is allegedly infringed. DailyMotion hack was announced by the LeakedSource Disclosure Service on Monday, which reported that 85 million users were stolen from unknown hackers.
LeakedSource revealed that hackers stole 85.200.000 account data that includes names, addresses electronics mail and passwords.
LeakedSource, which provides a user-friendly database of users who leaked into various hacks, has added the stolen data of the video sharing website to its search index. Since it has been opened, the site has added almost 3 billions of violations to its database.
Hacking may have taken place on October 20, which means stolen data has been released for a long time, according to LeakedSource.
Passwords are protected by the Bcrypt Segmentation algorithm, with 10 rounds of registry keys. Over 18 millions of DailyMotion recordings have such a password, making it hard to break with those using SHA1 or MD5.
ZDNet also confirmed that the data came from web page video sharing, but Vivendi's representatives, as the whispered owner of Paris-based DailyMotion, did not respond to the comments.
The damage is somewhat limited to DailyMotion users, as only a portion of the accounts had passwords leaked due to password security. However, this can be a good opportunity for these 18 million users who have leaked their code, change their password to other services that use it. Users who feel that their account details have been included in the leak can check it through the LeakedSource website.
Created by 2005, DailyMotion is currently 113 the most popular website in the world.
