More than 2 million passwords for Facebook, Twitter and Google have been stolen



More than 2 million passwords for Facebook, Twitter and Google have been stolen


According to a recent report published by Trustvave, it seems that some hackers have managed to steal more than 2 million passwords used on major social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google.

In fact, it seems that the malware that allowed this theft is a keylogger that, after being saved on a computer, sent sensitive data to a remote server, thus allowing hackers to have passwords and sensitive user data.

Among the many stolen profiles we find 318,000 Facebook accounts, 70,000 Gmail, Google+ and YouTube accounts, 60,000 Yahoo accounts, 22,000 Twitter accounts, 9,000 Odnoklassniki accounts (a Russian social network), 8,000 ADP accounts (management service of salaries) and 8,000 LinkedIn accounts.

The well-known social networks Facebook and Twitter have already sent an email to the accounts affected by this theft but, at least for now, the other services have not yet moved on.
