    Hey Guys,

    I'm new to the forums...I've never had a reason to create an account, but recently came across an opportunity that's too good to pass up.

    There was a webpage on a website somewhere that was accidentally giving out more information than it should have,

    I've got email address, username as well as City and State...but those are a little less reliable. If they're important i can do a pass through some other data to better geographically target them.

    It's in a pretty popular niche and the list contains about 2.1 Million users...

    How would I go about capitalizing on this? Perhaps there's someone around here that I could partner with on this venture...

    He apparently "found" them. :)

    If you pay attention, he described exactly how he got them.

    I actually haven't taken possession of the data yet... This is more of a preliminary hypothetical discussion. They're not published on this website's user profiles with normal HTTP headers...

    Getting ideas for how to monetize is really dependent on niche - while I understand you might think giving up the niche will give other people the opportunity to get these emails, it's very unlikely anyone will be able to follow through.

    That aside, 2.1m is a big database. Sending that many emails is difficult and expensive, but if there's a good use case and there's money to be made, I'm sure someone will JV with you on it.

    Yeah, I was afraid that would be the case, and I think I was a little too specific in my initial post (before the edits) to name the niche. I think I just have too much at stake with my current data mining initiatives to blow that cover and risk exposing the vulnerability. I'll probably just have to sit on this for 6-12 months...

    He probably just found the Ashley Madison leaked data.
