On February 3, 2012, Bkav, Vietnam's top internet security firm was hacked and its forum database leaked to the public. The hacker behind the hack was reportedly arrested in less than a week later and identified by local police as a computer security employee of an IT company in Hanoi. The leak, initially announced and made available by the hacker at the forum site itself was quickly removed but not before it was also made available for download at several file sharing sites. The file released as dump.sql (565MB), contains the full database dump from the vBulletin-based forum site at http://forum.bkav.com.vn together with over 130,000 user accounts containing emails and passwords hashed with salted MD5.
