    A Huge Chunk of The Internet Has Been Hacked (Over 1 Billion Passwords)

    Hold Security, the security company that’s identified most of the largest security breaches in the last couple of years (Target credit card breach & Adobe Systems data breach) uncovered the largest breach of personal data in the internet age yet in early August 2014. Hackers, dubbed  “CyberVor” (“vor” meaning “thief” in Russian), stole over 1.2 billion usernames and passwords, as well as over 500 million email addresses from more than 420,000 websites, ranging from small websites to large companies. There’s a good chance that the Cybervor Russian Cybercrime affected some of your accounts too.

    So, it’s important to be proactive because as long as your data is somewhere on the internet it may have been compromised. Your data does not have to be necessarily stolen from you directly. It could have been stolen from a website you signed up for, from your employers’ database, even from your friends and family. Read this article on identity theft protection and learn how to change your passwords to keep you safe from this threat.
