ZDNet’s source even verified some samples, and the credentials are found to be authentic.

A source in the cyber-security community who agreed to contact the seller to obtain samples has confirmed the validity of the data and obtained valid credentials for two accounts, the CEO of a US medium-sized software company and the CFO of an EU-based retail store chain.

The hacker is selling the account details for prices ranging from $100 to $1,500 depending on the company size and the role.
