    Akorn Inc., a niche pharmaceutical company Lake Forest, IL, has had a customer database with more than 50,000 records compromised by a hacker who is offering to sell the data to the highest bidder or back to the company, whichever comes first.

    The database was offered up on a dark web forum by a person known for using SQL Injection and other techniques to target vulnerable companies.


    Going by the alias "Mufasa" the hacker posted basic details on the data earlier this week, noting that it was an Akorn customer database, complete with business related information, including DEA numbers.
