3.2B Email and Password Pairs Leaked

CyberNews reports that a massive repository of individuals’ data has been posted online. Dubbed “Compilation of Many Breaches” (COMB) this may be the biggest-ever compilation of hacked user credentials ever posted online before, but it’s not the result of a new hack or data breach. Leaked user data combines a 2012 data breach at LinkedIn involving 117 million accounts, as well as stolen Netflix login data. This is the time to change passwords and it comes as a reminder for users to stop recycling user names and passwords across different services.
