That article mentioning the sale of millions of FB login details by a alleged Russian / NZ hacker cites the New York Times, but no NYT article speaking about this incident was found.
There is an article from the SF Chronicle & PC World stating this:
Verisign's iDefense Labs has discovered a website that lists some 1.5 million compromised Facebook accounts "for sale." The selling price is $25 per 1000 accounts with ten friends or less, and $45 per 1,000 for those accounts with more than ten friends. does, so I guess this is true.
Either way, this is - and will continue to be - quite interesting.
