In April 2021, the account hijacking and SIM swapping forum OGusers suffered a data breach, the fourth since December 2018.

A total of 348k unique email addresses appeared in the breach.
In May 2021, the Grand Theft Auto Online cheats website Paragon Cheats suffered a data breach that lead to the shutdown of the service.

In late March 2022, the Sri Lankan payment gateway PayHere suffered a data breach that exposed more than 65GB of payment records including over 1.5M unique email addresses. The data also included IP and physical addresses, names, phone numbers, purchase histories and partially obfuscated credit card data (card type, first 6 and last 4 digits plus expiry date). More than a month later, no disclose notice could be found despite the promise of a detailed incident report.
In mid-2019, the video game cheats website “Aimware” suffered a data breach that exposed hundreds of thousands of subscribers' personal information.

In approximately December 2019, an alleged data breach of the lawyer directory service Avvo was published to an online hacking forum and used in an extortion scam (it's possible the exposure dates back earlier than that). The data contained 4.1M unique email addresses alongside SHA-1 hashes, most likely representing user passwords. Multiple attempts at contacting Avvo over the course of a week were unsuccessful and the authenticity of the data was eventually verified with common Avvo and HIBP subscribers.
