Online gaming marketplace Traderie has suffered a data breach that reportedly saw user data stored on its servers. A TechCrunch article reports on a notification email sent to affected users, as well as the advertisement for the database posted on the dark web.

As per the report, a hacker going by the name “victim” posted a new ad on BreachForums claiming to have stolen data on 2.6 million Traderie users, including people’s IP addresses, and online identifiers for services such as Discord, TikTok, Roblox, Xbox Live, Apple, Google, and others. The hacker also claims the database contains some Stripe information, such as customer ID and subscription status, and is asking for $5,000 worth of Bitcoin in exchange.

Traderie is an online marketplace for in-game items. Skins, usable items (for example armor, weapons, etc.), and more can be bought there. The site covers dozens of games, including multiple Diablo games, Rocket League, Roblox, different Pokemon games, and more.
