    Recently exploited software vulnerabilities in vBulletin have exposed more than 27 million accounts across nearly a dozen websites.

    A majority of the compromised accounts are linked to three games on mail.ru. In addition to the gaming accounts, more than 190,000 accounts were exposed on expertlaw.com, as well as more than 100,000 accounts on gamesforum.com

    Combined, the compromised mail.ru domains allowed LeakedSource to add 25,133,805 accounts to their database on Wednesday. At the time of notification, they had managed to crack 12,463,300 passwords.

    The compromised mail.ru accounts were exposed recently (August 2016) and are from the gaming side of the company. CFire, Parapa, and Tanks accounts were all exposed. The Parapa forums were also compromised.
