A hacker is trying to sell a database dump containing account records for 167 million LinkedIn users.

Called TheRealDeal by a user who wants 5 bitcoins, or around $2,200, for the data set that supposedly contains user IDs, email addresses and SHA1 password hashes for 167,370,940 users.

The data was said to be posted on an online Russian hacker forum.

According to the sale ad, the dump does not cover LinkedIn’s complete database.
