Website that sold 3.1 billion passwords disappears after attack

The Leaked Source site (https://www.leakedsource.com/) specializing in “leaking” lists of user passwords has been put down. According to information from the site https://arstechnica.com police officers allegedly invaded the site’s operations center, and seized servers and hard drives. Apparently, those responsible for the site were not arrested.

A person with the username LTD wrote Thursday in an online forum.

“Leakedsource is down forever and won’t be coming back”

“Owner raided early this morning. Wasn’t arrested, but all [solid state drives] got taken, and Leakedsource servers got subpoenaed and placed under federal investigation. If somehow he recovers from this and launches LS again, then I’ll be wrong. But I am not wrong.”

Laked Force became known after exposing databases with email accounts and user passwords from websites such as Adultfriendfinder.com, from the Evony gaming company and also from the Russian portal Rambler.ru.
The data was sold on the web by paying for a subscription on the site.

It is unclear if the server seizure information is accurate, but the site is currently off the air. There is still the possibility that the databases and files on the site have been saved by others, which would allow it to be replicated.
