Some data are outdated: It isn't from a single data breach; instead the collection is composed of data pulled together from multiple data breaches and leaks. Some of them happened two to three years ago.Some people think stale data, especially passwords and emails, are not particularly useful to re-sue. However, in phishing and extortion campaigns, even an outdated password is still possible to cheat unsuspecting user to give own information or even pay ransom.
