    32 million Twitter accounts at risk

    Login credentials of 32 million users of Twitter are leaked and it is for sale on dark web. However, this is not due to the data breach of Twitter. According to LeakedSource the credentials are leaked by infecting malware on popular browsers like Chrome and Firefox. And the users so affected are from Russia. Recently, many login credentials of popular social sites like LinkedIn and MySpace are leaked. This is probably because of using similar passwords on internet.

    Priya thanks for the update, it once again reminds me that the users have to be vigilant about their login credentials, and they must select a secure password as this will make it harder for the hackers to breach the login details.

      Yes David. Having same login credentials everywhere on the internet is risky. It becomes easier for attackers to gain the login credentials without extra efforts. With such crimes taking place at a faster rate, it is necessary to be alert and take preventive steps.

        You have rightly said it Priya users must not use the same passwords for multiple accounts because hackers make use of sophisticated software and high-powered computers that can generate up to 350 billion attempts every second to breach a password.
