BleepingComputer reports that there is a hacker or a group of them selling over 5.8 million RedDoorz user records on a platform. RedDoorz, a Singaporean hotel management & booking forum, had suffered a data breach in September 2020.


However, after the data breach, RedDoorz management had attempted to assure users of their safety by downplaying the gravity of the breach.

For each user records in the database, a RedDoorz member’s email, bcrypt hashed passwords, full name, gender, link to profile photo, phone number, secondary phone number, date of birth, and occupation is exposed,” the report reads.
