Okay, that is many websites. I wonder how many devices were compromised?

Do you guys have any clue why these things happen? I mean, 26,100 is a lot and I think there must be some reason to it on why they got hacked. that is kinda scary I must say. And the fact that it was on India alone makes it kinda scarier. Personally, I am so scared of having my accounts hacked whether it may be on social media or on my playing account on casinodays. I wouldn’t want to lose my prizes there so I might as well withdraw them sonner so that there’s no risk of losing them all.

Is there any way to acquire a list of the affected websites?
