In October 2017, the Malaysian website lowyat.net ran a story on a massive set of breached data affecting millions of Malaysians after someone posted it for sale on their forums. The data spanned multiple separate breaches including the JobStreet jobs website which contained almost 4 million unique email addresses. The dates in the breach indicate the incident occurred in March 2012. The data later appeared freely downloadable on a Tor hidden service and contained extensive information on job seekers including names, genders, birth dates, phone numbers, physical addresses and passwords.
