    I got a Lookout message today about Aptoide (a 3rd party Android APP downloading site) which was hacked. Aptoide say’s that everything was encrypted yet the hackers are selling the information online, so my question is if it was encrypted what are the hackers selling?

    Here’s the Aptoide explanation: https://blog.aptoide.com/aptoide-credentials-information/

    Here’s what Lookout had to say:

    Aptoide-Breach

    Be careful out there!!!

      if it was encrypted what are the hackers selling?

      Their ability to hack sites?
      Advertising how poor the Aptoide site security is?
      It could be a disgruntled (ex) employee.

      Personally, it won’t affect me as I do not use 3rd party apps but I assume that quite a number of people are sweating bullets with this news. Then again, just about everyone’s identity has been in one hack or another by now.
