Ionut Arghire of SecurityWeek wrote a very good article about the potential breach of Myspace.com: 427 Million MySpace Passwords Appear For Sale and I was quoted a lot! Thanks, Ionut!
I wrote more extensively about what I think of this leak: Myspace.com was apparently hacked, 360Mil accounts on sale and nobody knows any details
There are many things that aren’t right with this breach. Read the article above…
Another question, after reading the above article: how come that Troy Hunt didn’t get it? Maybe because it is only available for money?
The data hasn’t been tested at all and according to Troy’s article it is not valid data:
- no sql dump
- Too many yahoo.com and hotmail.com email addresses
- According to Troy, Gmail should be the top email provider these days (and also 3 years ago)
- Partial username, partial email address, partial password -> can it get worse than this?
