This is literally a ton of user data.
Today, yet another another hack has occurred in the world of video games, allegedly. But it never hurts to be careful so just go on ahead and update your security information just in case. A group of hackers have claimed that they have leaked in excess of 5000 PlayStation Network, Windows Live and 2K Games accounts.
One individual claiming to represent the hackers has said, ““We have 800,000 from 2K and 500,000 credit card data. In all of our raids we have a total of around 7 million usernames and passwords. We have around 2 million Comcast accounts, 620,000 Twitter accounts, 1.2 million credentials belonging to the CIA domain, 200,000 Windows Live accounts, 3 million Facebook, 1.7 million EA origins accounts, etc.”
Now, while not trying to play the role of fear monger, the above numbers are pretty damn large. So don’t fall into the mindset of “I’ll be safe”. Seriously do go and change your security information asap and (if possible) change your security procedures as well.
