Dark Web email breach details

Still waiting on answer from McAfee on what exactly this might mean. It is supposed to be from the "Compiled  Breach List".  Anyone seen this before?

"This source has been marked as sensitive due to one of the following reasons: Revealing the source may compromise an on-going investigation. The affected site is of a controversial nature but does not validate email addresses and could therefore be used to tarnish an employee's reputation."

Thanks.

Re: Dark Web email breach details-Request 1-100927811

To all: I was promised a call back to my land line, NOT MY CELL PHONE, on 2 occasions. The last person I talked with, Mary, told me I would get a call back on the number I gave her. (land line, not cell phone) I DID NOT receive a call back. Twice-no call back. I require, DEMAND, a detailed explanation of the following message I have received on my main email account on 12-1-2021.

I was told my request would be escalated to a higher level. No calls. NONE.

"This source has been marked as sensitive due to one of the following reasons: Revealing the source may compromise an on-going investigation. The affected site is of a controversial nature but does not validate email addresses and could therefore be used to tarnish an employee's reputation."

1.) What is the sensitive source. Who is conducting the "on-going" investigation? McAfee, or a third party? This is too vague. What does this mean?!!!!!

2.) What does this mean? " and could therefore be used to tarnish an employee's reputation" I DEMAND, (subject to legal action) a complete, detailed explanation. Prefer written response to my email account.  If not, send email with time period I should expect a call.

THIS IS MY LAST CONTACT!!! YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO RESPOND. ALSO INCLUDE DIRECT PHONE NUMBER OF YOUR LEGAL DEPARTMENT!!!

Kumar. I am not able to respond to your private email. I enter your name, Kumar_suman, and am unable to send. Did you leave the company? If so, don't blame you. Such a pitiful company!!!

Hello, I also received the same breach notification. Can you please provide me with some information as to what it means. Could it be a breach from former employer? Can you please tell me what type of investigation it is referring to. 

Thank you!
