More than 3.8 billion pieces of data from Clubhouse are up for sale on the dark web, according to a news report by the outlet CyberNews. But it’s not the type of valuable leak that it might sound like.
The social audio app made headlines back in July when news came out that data from the network had appeared on hacker forums. At the time, CEO Paul Davidson said that the app wasn’t hacked but rather someone had used a bot to crawl its API and collect public information on every user in its database. But now, CyberNews has published a story saying that the trove of data being sold includes not just usernames and emails, but also private phone numbers.
