Inexpensive Email Dumps Being Offered On The Dark Web

Various email data, including a U.S. voter database, are being offered on the Dark Web, according to the Dark Web Price Index 2021, a report by Privacy Affairs. 

Overall, a full range of documents on the average person is available for $1,000. 

PrivacyAffairs.com collected hundreds of examples of the data being sold. 

Email listings are relatively cheap.

“Email dumps are very common and notoriously inexpensive due to their mainstream availability and low accuracy,” the report states. “Most email dumps are aggregations and collections of other email breaches.”

The Dark Web now offers these email dumps:

  • Fake US Green Card — $150 
  • 600k New Zealand emails — $10
  • 350k Czech emails — $10 
  • 2.4 million Canada emails — $10 
  • 4.76 million Mexico emails — $10 
  • 360k Austria emails — $15 
  • Private USA dentists database 122k — $50
  • USA Voter Database (various states) — $150

In general, the study also reports that the following information is available: 

  • Online banking logins — an average of $40
  • Credit card details including associated data — $14-$30
  • Hacked Facebook account — $35 

These offerings are available because: “Notable corporations and organizations like NASA, McDonald’s, Visa, MasterCard, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Lockheed Martin, Google, even cybersecurity companies FireEye and SolarWinds have all been victims to serious breaches in 2020 alone,” says a blog post on the study results.

    The junk and scams email received by people as a result of such offerings seriously dilutes the value of legitimate email.
