LiveJournal Hack Exposes 26M Old Credentials | Avast

Rumors that a massive LiveJournal hack occurred several years ago were proven true this week as 26 million stolen credentials from the popular online journaling platform went up for sale on the dark web. ZDNet reported that rumors of the hack have been circulating since 2018 when users began seeing their LiveJournal passwords show up in targeted sextortion schemes. Then, this week, attackers used old LiveJournal credentials to launch credential-stuffing attacks at LiveJournal offshoot Dreamwidth. Despite this likely evidence, however, LiveJournal parent company Rambler Group still has not confirmed a breach.
