A hacker is currently selling a huge database of 49 million business contacts on a underground hacking forum, ZDNet has learned.
The hacker claims the data belongs to LimeLeads, a San Francisco-based business-to-business (B2B) leads generator, which +makes its money by renting access to an internal database containing business contacts that can be used for pitches and sales.
