How Many of Your Employee Passwords Are For Sale on the Dark Web RIGHT NOW?

Dark Web

Equifax really blew it! Experts are saying their loss of 143 Million customer records (40% of the US public) is "the motherload" of all hacks, and will affect us all forever (you only have one social security number). I just contacted all three credit bureaus and instituted a "credit lock" to prevent anyone from using my credit. It was part of a $99/year package at Experian with some really nice additional features, and free at both Transunion and Equifax (where you can also check if you were affected by the breach).

 

Major Data Breaches

Besides the Equifax breach, everyone knows that much of the hacking activity on the Internet starts with phishing schemes, where someone clicks on a seemingly benign link in an email, often looking like it came from a coworker. Your computer might get infected with malware to compromise your security, or you could be tricked into entering your credentials into a counterfeit website. The other major source of lost credentials is the large number of hacked commercial websites, like BestBuy, LinkedIn and Yahoo mail. 

The personal information gleaned by these hacks is valuable, and today there is a vibrant market for those who want to buy your information, mostly for sale on the "Dark Web" which lies below the World Wide Web we regularly use.

 

Surface Web

What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web (also sometimes referred to as Darknet) is a name given to web sites not reachable except through anonymous friend-to-friend peer networks or tools such as Tor, Freenet or I2P. Some dark web activity is positive, including political discussion in countries that prohibit free speech. More typically, malicious actors with criminal intent use these tools to stay undetected while carrying out their nefarious activities.  

In more detail, the most familiar layer, the visible Web, gives access to sites indexed by search engines such as Google, Bing, Wikipedia, social media and more. Below that, lies the Deep Web consisting of secure data such as databases, medical records, legal documents, government records and the like, which cannot be accessed or indexed by traditional search engines. This layer is well organized and filtered. Beneath that is the Dark Web where criminals lurk running hidden chat rooms, private websites, virus/malware tools and technologies that can compromise your credentials and data. This layer consists of black markets, botnet operations, terrorists, hacking groups and decrypted passwords. This is where big company breached password databases end up for sale as well. Here, in the dark depths of the web, cyber criminals use their felonious talents to steal and sell information on a regular basis.

Don’t be a victim. Be smart and take action. There are methods to protect your employees and your business. Don’t be fooled into thinking that all you need to do is use long, difficult passwords. It’s not enough in today’s cyber world! You need to continually monitor your vulnerabilities!

GREAT NEWS!  We hired a vendor that lets us search the dark web for our customers' personal information and then warn them if we find it. LeBlanc Communications is offering the LeBlanc Email Password Protection Service, which ranges from a one-time check for compromised credentials to an ongoing monthly monitoring to warn customers if one of their emails pops up as being recently compromised. 

Our new service scours the Dark Web for potential security breaches tied to a specific domain. We alert our customers about compromised credentials before their security is jeopardized.  

Be proactive and learn about the potential or real threats that can cause harm and damage to your business. Take action and protect yourself regularly in addition to enforcing stricter cyber-practices within your organization. In today's cyber world, you must be vigilant!

Comparison Chart
There is no guarantee that our vendor will find every credential for sale on the Dark Web. There could also occasionally be some fake email addresses within any particular domain. The search results will typically be from the last 24 months but passwords could be older, from databases no longer actively used. The one-time search is limited to the most recent 100 records for email vulnerabilities. Monthly customers will have access to all available records. There is a 12-month minimum term for the LeBlanc Email Password Protection Service.

Many records will have an encrypted password which can sometimes be decrypted through the use of one of the publically available decryptions sites we will provide you. However, some passwords will not be able to be deciphered or there may be no password shown at all. (It does not mean you are safe.)
