According to ZDNet post, the biggest numbers in today’s batch is for GIF image hosting company; GfyCat — selling the database at 0.35 Bitcoin (roughly UGX4.8 million). However, the published records in third sale cost a total of 2.6249 Bitcoin (roughly UGX36 million).
The hacker says he intends to sell over one billion user records and then disappear with the money. S/he further told ZDNet, that their “goal is to money, and downfall of American pigs.”
None of the affected companies hasn’t commented on the issue when contacted.

Below is the message accompanied while selling off the records:
George Duke-Cohan is a young and talented boy, instead of giving him a chance, the UK govt sends him to prison for three years. Now, he’s been told by the American government, that he faces 65 years for the offense he was already sentenced to three years in the UK. It means he will be judged twice ?? May this upcoming release of dumps serve as a reminder: When countries claim to respect their citizens, they have duty protect them. I wouldn’t be surprised whether George Duke-Cohan ends his life, the UK gov already destroyed him and doing this is like sentencing him to death.
If he is not given a fair justice during the upcoming days, weeks, years, more data will be released….
