Mega Hack Discovered

A huge attack on US systems was discovered by security outfits, which has supposedly stolen 1.2 billion user name and password combinations plus over 500 million email addresses.

wargames-hacker.jpg

The intrusion was discovered by a company called Hold Security and was alleged to include confidential content collected from 420,000 websites, including household names and small sites. The security outfit has a record of uncovering huge hacks – for instance, it was the one to discover the 2013 theft of tens of millions of records from Adobe Systems. This means that Hold Security could have been seen as a reliable source.

The company claimed that the hacking attack was discovered after over 7 months of research and was being carried out by some unnamed Russian cyber gang. Apparently, the latter now owns the largest cache of stolen information.

Now, what many of the comments about the breach online center on is the fact that the security outfit is offering a $120 per month breach notification service allowing people to find out whether the hackers stole their passwords on file. Another fact that is highlighted in comments is that Hold Security timed its announcement to fit with the Black Hat Security conference with the alleged intention to spark a debate on password security.

As you can see, unanswered questions about the hack remain. The security company said that the hacking collective started out buying stolen credentials on the black market and then used those credentials to launch other attacks. Nevertheless, it remains unclear how many credentials were purchased and how many of the 1.2 billion they culled on their own. In simple words, this huge database (if it even exists) could be just an entirely ancient data.

The industry experts also point out that it is unclear whether the alleged stolen passwords came from important financial websites or less important ones. In addition, it is unknown what exactly the hackers are going to do with those details. The experts explain that if the obtained data include fresh credentials for important online services like online banking, they can be used to steal money from online accounts. In the case they are older or from little-used services, the hacker might use the data to send spam by email or post it in online forums.

raykling4 avatar@[email protected] You are correct jimm....they will not apply for credit cards or empty your accounts. They will only catalog on every single piece of info they can obtain about you and monitor your personal life! Must be out yo mind if you support these criminals!

Mr_T_Cat avatar@4 I wonder what information you have on your computer that you are so worried the NSA would find. The fact that you may dress up in your wife's cloths does not really interest them.
I wonder if the company that has discovered this possible hack could be held as a conspirator to any criminal actions by not with holding the fact that they have information relating to a crime. I suspect that in the UK that they could be.

No avatarYeah the NSA is collecting all of it basically for the same reason they said they spied on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during COINTELPRO- to stop social change (or justice) specifically to 'preserve the current social order' I think it was.

It's also for the same reason- these criminals are in power thanks to those same injustices and policies. So they likely target anyone that 'rocks the boat' as far as offense spending, repealing past unjust laws, prosecuting high crimes such as NSA targeting Americans etc.

No avatar@5 Any information can and will be used against you if a bad guy has it and decides to use it.

I wonder what information you think doesn't interest them seeing as they spend billions to collect and store and analyze absolutely all of it INSTEAD of targeting actual enemies.

I wonder if you think nobody will ever design a program to use this information to do things like tracking down Jews for Hitler or Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s friends and supporters to go and hang them.

If you believe that moronic propaganda about them not being 'interested' in what they spent billions on to collect while they IGNORE terrorists, then I have a space ship in the Adromeda galaxy I'll sell you for $10K.

CCC avatarWow, only 10K I will take it. Just post your financial info so I can transfer it. PS Do you deliver?

We know what the government is doing, but with simple protection you can avoid what they find. Use a seperate drive (removable) or at least drive letter (partion) for info you want to keep private, Use Linux to browse, etc.

Embolism avatar@4 once again it is the same old rhetoric ,if you have nothing to hide it should not bother you,well it should not for the fact that we are all being catalogued and added to their database and that according to European law it is an illegal intrusion of our personal and private data,if the same logic was applied and everyone downloaded their data they would sh1te a brick and throw every communication act in the book at us,but if they have nothing to hide why should it bother them in return.

Embolism avatarIf i want to send poo poo kitty my love in a text ,picture or sext its not for the eyes of some pervy G-man who does not have my permission to view,collect or disseminate it to every agency in the USA.As for the article above it may well be of interest that as far back as backtrack 4 bods were getting 1/2 million email addys and passwords in 30 mins as to whether they choose to do anything with them is a different matter and the same goes for any other sites or systems many of which can be compromised easily with a little penetration and system logs will obviously record this for the benefit of firms like Hold security and others after the fact.

Embolism avatarActually Google was already hacked and their database accessed some while ago and the NSA justified it by doing it outside of the USA as not against American federal law to do so,now if it is alright for them to hack private corporations why is it not alright for everyone else to do the same and hack them (:^))

Embolism avatar@14 scientia potentia est - Knowledge is power Its a well worn and proven concept and I`d rather not have it proven by the NSA or GCHQ in my country,if you give up your so called god given inalienable rights to the man you fail as a citizen and to yourself as you surrender more than your privacy,liberty and freedom on the internet but also your choice as to what truths they will allow you to see and enslave yourself too,what you receive in your mail,what companies send you spam and whoever else wants to violate your A hole.
The W.W.W was created by TimBL for the people not for governmental control and despite the effect it has on development some good and bad it is in breach of peoples rights according to EU law.

Beyond invading privacy, Green European Parliament lawmaker Jan Philipp Albrecht said the data collection also “totally failed to lead to any noticeable improvement in law enforcement.”

No avatar@14 Them spying on you is illegal. When they spy on all citizens it doesn't make you safer. They aren't 'watching your back' they're levying war on you just as they did during COINTELPRO when they spied on people like MLK Jr..

Only a moron would believe the people committing TREASON are looking for criminals, when they are the highest criminals in charge and the only time they would ever target an actual criminal is to justify you paying them to target you and subvert your security as they steal everything.

So those of us who live on Earth, with mortal lives care. We care that traitors are levying war on us while buffoons support such treason believing propaganda that these criminals are protecting people when they are in fact endangering them on a daily basis.

And no, I don't hate the NSA. I hate the criminals who have taken over the NSA, and the fools that think you can 'reform' or tolerate them like the Gestapo is your friend or just needs guidance.

And no I don't think we don't need the government, I think we need the government to be legitimate, rather than run by outlaws that violate out highest laws which say that what they are doing is puniishable by firing squad.

And no, these people have convinced the gullible and ignorant that they are not being assaulted in a cold war and are being protected by this assault. They are not idiots- the people believing them even after countless documented lies and treasonous crimes are idiots.
