For your information, Raidforums.com is one of the largest clearnet hacking forums. For instance, LinkedIn’s scraped databases containing billions of user records were leaked on Raidforums.com. Facebook’s 500 million scraped users database from 106 countries was also leaked on the same forum for free.

Some hackers sold databases depending on the value of the targeted company. However, the forum’s popularity was merely for leaking and downloading stolen databases for free.
