Details of LinkedIn, Tumblr, Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Data Breaches Revealed
Everyday the news is exploding with reports of the latest data breaches and cyberattacks, which come so quickly and frequently that some cybercrime doesn’t get as much notice as it should (much to the relief of the CEOs of the companies, I’m sure.) Recently cybercrime has been rocking the headlines yet again, with big names catching our attention like LinkenIn, Tumblr…and remember MySpace? Yep, MySpace. Read on for the latest headlines about data breaches that may be affecting you.
“The same hacker who was selling the data of more than 164 million LinkedIn users last week now claims to have 360 million emails and passwords of MySpace users, which would be one of the largest leaks of passwords.”
Originally thought to have impacted 6.5 million users, LinkedIn has now discovered that more than 100 million accounts were compromised in the data breach.
LinkenIn emailed users last Wednesday alerting them that if they haven’t changed their password since 2012, their passwords will be canceled because of the four-year-old data breach.
Tumblr has admitted to a data breach, but hasn’t released how many users were affected. A new independent analysis claims that 65 million passwords were stolen.
272.3 million account details were stolen from Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and a Russian email service.
