Cybercriminals have posted offers on the darknet to sell access to thousands of accounts allegedly linked to the cryptocurrency-friendly Robinhood platform. This is reported by Bloomberg.
Journalists claim that 10,000 passwords from platform accounts have entered the darknet market.
Compared to stolen accesses to another large broker TD Ameritrade, Robinhood is ten times higher.
According to the publication, hackers mainly operate according to the scheme of hacking emails: they request password recovery and intercept the notification. Robinhood said that the stolen email is not enough to compromise the account.
Recall that in October, the media reported that hackers had gained access to about two thousand Robinhood accounts. The platform did not disclose the amount of damage and recommended that users enable two-factor authentication.
