This kind of thing reminds me I should change passwords on a regular basis.
|Hide Security said it had also found 1.25 billion email addresses without passwords. |
|It is unknown where the credentials, which were found in the past three weeks, came from - but the company said they included major email providers. |
Experts said that the batch was exceptionally large in size. "It is Godzilla-sized, it is a monster," said online security consultant Graham Cluley.
He added: "There may be some duplicates but, even so, it sounds like a complete treasure trove for cybercriminals."
