When you push down on one corner of the biscuit tin, the other corner pops up.

The cash-for-hacked-passwords website LeakedSource.Com disappeared last year. And now its operator has been charged with (amongst other things) 'trafficking in identity information'. I did not know that was a thing. The charges were brought in Canada. 

Unfortunately, this doesn't mean we can stop worrying about password security. As one of these sites disappears, another one pops up to take its place. The replacement website is offering 4.7 billion sets of our credentials for sale for as little as $2. Not unsurprisingly, payment methods include multiple cryptocurrencies - Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash & Ripple.
