    The latest site to find itself on the receiving end of this phenomenon is Cracked.to which last Friday reportedly found its database of 321,000 members and 749,161 unique email addresses leaked on rival site, RaidForums.

    We can say that with confidence because by Monday the compromised accounts had become another statistic on the Have I Been Pwned (HIBP) breach database – the industry’s go-to for news of such incidents.
