The leaked data came with a very short message

Greetings everyone. Today we decided to leak some very interesting information. Information from the Web-Admin from good old ASUS. These accounts are from the ASUS eStore, and I’ve tried, and you can login to them. I also found it a challenge because I saw the GoDaddy "Security" icon. That said they were verified for proper security. Couldn’t stop after I saw that ;). Enjoy.

As well as the message a dump of administration login credentails which are in the format of username:password with the password being encrypted.
