Hackers stole the personal data of thousands — or potentially hundreds of thousands — of women who bought plus-size clothes, and now they’re auctioning off the records online.
The unusual hack was first spotted by the security agency DynaRisk, Business Insider reports , which spotted the perpetrators selling the data on forums. DynaRisk suggests that the personal data was being scooped up by online advertisers who would use it to specifically target the victims, meaning that hackers are now making money off the same personalized ad marketplace as legit tech companies.
