The cyber criminal organization known as USDoD has allegedly stolen 2.9 billion records from Florida based information broker National Public Data, which handles API searches for companies requesting background checks.

The database was first spotted online in April 2024 with a price tag of $3.5 million, and was later verified to be at least semi-genuine by experts at VX-Underground.
