    Three websites owned by Penton Technology, acquired in 2015 as part of the purchase of iNET Interactive – MacForums.com, HotScripts.com, and WebHostingTalk.com – have been compromised and their databases are now being sold on the Darknet.

    On TheRealDeal website, a vendor with a solid reputation is offering the Mac-Forums database for ~$775.00, which includes 291,214 accounts.

    The Hot Scripts database, with more than a million users, is currently going for ~$1,900.00.

    The Web Hosting Talk database, with 498,321 users, is also available for ~$1,900.00.

    Salted Hash has reached out to Penton Technology for additional details and comment. We'll update this story should they respond. For now, if you have an account on one of these websites, you should change your password.
