1.4 billion email accounts compromised
The list of websites that have been hacked is growing, and it is VERY likely that every one of us has been affected.
Hackers have always compiled, sold and distributed a list of breached accounts, but in December 2017 researchers saw an unprecedented list show up on the Dark Web.
A hacker assembled 1.4 billion compromised email address and credentials into a very organized list. The hackers provided tools to quickly search, sort and add to the list.
The compromised accounts were from many recent hacks including LinkedIn, Equifax and Uber. To see an updated list of hacks, refer to the Wikipedia article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_data_breaches
The 42 GB list is currently shared on many Peer to Peer networks and it can be found by anyone that truly wants to.
Matraex researched this list and developed a Hack Check app at hackcheck.email to allow users to check whether they are on the list.
