Data Breach: 5.4 Million Twitter Accounts Hacked

More than 5.4 million of Twitter users’ records including personal phone numbers and email addresses, are available on the dark web as part of a massive data dump.

The data dump was identified by the founder of cyber security awareness company Habitu8, Chad Loder, who shared the news in a post on his Twitter handle on November 23 and had his account suspended shortly after posting the information.

Loder stated that the attack affects Twitter users in the European Union and the United States, and that he confirmed that the breached data is correct and occurred no earlier than 2021.

The removal of his tweet and suspension of his account has fueled speculation that Twitter is attempting to hide the data breach.
