In addition, attacks are made against IMJUVE, the Instituto Mexicano de la Juventud. The threat actor states that they are offering complete access to the website’s database for sale and that they have access to all the leaked databases.

Furthermore, they claim to have more than 3,000 recordings available for sale.

Additionally, it was discovered that admin access was being sold illegally that allegedly belonged to a Spanish-based online store.

With Spain as the location, the threat actor claims to be offering administrative access to the store. 

The threat actor goes on to list the number of orders for May (467) and June (364), respectively. The admin access is priced at $150.

For both people and businesses, data leaking poses a severe security risk. Sensitive information, including emails, texts, social media postings, and more, can become available to persons who shouldn’t have access to it.

Thus, users must take precautions to safeguard their personal information, such as adopting secure passwords and being wary of concerning emails or communications.
