  • A computer security researcher has stumbled upon another huge file of stolen user names and passwords that was posted on the ‘net for other hackers to enjoy. According to web security firm Trustwave, hackers have stolen login usernames and passwords across various sites in the past month with the help of Pony malware, a bit different than a typical breach. Although these are accounts for online services such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google, this is not the result of any weakness in those companies networks. Individual users had the malware installed on their machines and had their passwords stolen. Pony steals passwords that are stored on the infected users’ computers as well as by capturing them when they are used to log into web services. The malware was configured so that the majority of the credential information was sent to a server in the Netherlands. The server does not show from which countries the information came from however confirmed attacks targeted users worldwide including in the U.S., Germany, Singapore, Thailand and others. Facebook accounted for about 57% of the compromised accounts, followed by Yahoo 10%, Google 9%, Twitter 3% and LinkedIn 1.5%.

    Twitter Password Reset Email

    If you’re wondering if the e-mail asking you to change your password on your Twitter account is legit or a phishing scam look no further the e-mail is legit.  Twitter sent password reset email to many accounts, thanks to a security breach.  Sites like Mashable, Techcrunch and many others got there Twitter accounts hacked and a tweet with a link was sent out saying: “Make $250 A Day From Home” Twitter has sent out e-mails to user that they believe have compromised accounts.  The e-mail reads “We’re committed to keeping Twitter a safe and open community. As part of that commitment, in instances when we believe an account may have been compromised, we reset the password and send an email letting the account owner know this has happened along with information about creating a new password. This is a routine part of our processes to protect our users. In this case, we unintentionally reset passwords of a larger number of accounts, beyond those that we believed to have been compromised. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.” If you received this message or when you login to twitter they asked you to change your password this is legitimate.  Make sure you do this to keep your account safe.
