What is database name and source in the context of data breaches?

Created by Juan Manuel Libera Frómeta, Modified on Tue, 21 Feb 2023 at 06:20 PM by Juan Manuel Libera Frómeta

The database name refers to the location from where the stolen data was taken. For example, it could be the name of a website or organization where a security breach occurred. The source, on the other hand, is the website or marketplace on the dark web where the stolen information is exposed to be sold. 

In some cases, the source may not be specified, and it will be labeled as "not disclosed." This means that the data is available on the dark web, but it's unclear where it originally came from.

At InsecureWeb, we strive to provide as much information as possible about data breaches to help our users stay informed and protected. If you have any further questions about database names or sources, please don't hesitate to contact our support team.
