A hacker has leaked the database of Daniel’s Hosting (DH), the largest free web hosting provider for dark web services, according to ZDNet. The leaked data includes 3,671 email addresses, 7,205 account passwords, and 8,580 private keys for .onion (dark web) domains, and was obtained after the hacker breached DH in March this year. Shortly after, DH owner Daniel Winzen revealed that the hacker had breached his portal, stolen its database, and then wiped all servers. Two weeks later, DH shut down its service for good, urging users to move their sites to new dark web hosting providers. Around 7,600 websites — a third of all dark web portals — went down following DH’s shutdown.
