After the massive data breaches of web giants Dropbox, Badoo, MySpace, Tumblr, LinkedIn and Yahoo! in September 2016 (the biggest massive piracy of individual data against a single company never made public), Dailymotion, one of the most visited video platforms in the world has been attacked. The French online video giant remains behind YouTube, bringing in more than 300 million unique visitors per month. More than 85 million accounts are affected by this massive data leak, which still makes it one of the most important attacks of the year.
