The hackers have already put the data on sale on hacker forums and dark web market places according to a report from CyberNews. As proof of a successful cyberattack against the server, the hacker posted a link to a page on the Stalker Online website that proved that they had “personally hacked” and placed their “tag” on the server.
The CyberNews researcher found the two separate databases belonging to the Stalker Online MMO game being sold online by unknown hackers. The report says two databases were being offered for sale on Shoppy.gg and are being sold to the highest bidder. CyberNews says both the databases are being sold individually for “several hundred euros worth of bitcoin” on hacker forums.
