FF monitor show gatehub hack for my mail


Recommended Posts

Hi all;

using hte firefox monitor I get the gatehub hack as one of the hacks in my list.

my question is: is the FF monitor based on real data? for example the leaked DB? or does it only know that my mail has a gatehub account and will show this hack for all gatehub users.

thanks for your comments.

I received a warning from my credit monitoring service (Experian) They provide what they call a “dark web scan” (sounds impressive but it’s not)

About 2 weeks ago I was notified that my email address was found on a known “dark web site” associated with illegal activities.

The offending site’s name was “Gatehub.net”

According to Experian Gatehub.net  is the dark site, and not the victim.

How can having my email address compromise my emails? I never gave Gatehub my email server’s password. In fact, even though I registered at Gatehub, I never used the site. I used another exchange when purchasing.

I was just about to ask this as well.

I used a different password on Gatehub than my email address. 
Ive changed my emails password since the hack as well, but I believe I am safe?
