Mobile banking-app Dave leaks data of 2.9 million users.
Here we can see who's "really lost" in this case: https://dave.com/.well-known/security.txt  ;)

Read on this security.txt initiative for security policy standard researchers: https://securitytxt.org/
and spread the word.

Hacker leaks 386 million user records from 18 companies for free
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/hacker-leaks-386-million-user-records-from-18-companies-for-free/
If leaking this information is illegal, and apparently BleepingComputer is able to 'talk' to this hacker, I wonder if
BleepingComputer has an obligation to report this to the authorities? I wonder if they've done that?

How to detect malcious webshop websites?

Read: https://www.ic3.gov/media/2020/200803.aspx

There are plenty of ways to check online whether a webshop is to be trusted, like scamadviser, UrlVoid, Trustpilot, etc.
Mozilla observatory. HTTP downgraded websites are suspicious. Also contructions like WW2 etc.
Brand new registrations , whois data through 3rd parties.

Misspellings and grammatical errors.
Often cybercrinimals give themselves away in such ways.

When something seems too good to be true, then that might really be the case.
Always use your common sense under all circumstances.
