FBI iniciates investigation of 1.2 billion stolen credentials
An investigation concerning the 1.2 billion stolen logins which were found this month has started. The investigation will be conducted by the FBI, and one of their press spokesman guaranteed that the public will be provided with more information in the near future.
Hold Security is the company that managed to salvage the lost data. According to this Wisconsin-based security company, a group of hackers called “CyberVor” are the main suspects. They are accused of stealing logins from more than 400,000 servers and webpages. Hold Security believes that the hackers used a botnet and a SQL injection in order to collect the data. Unfortunately, other details could not be revealed to the public due to the ongoing investigation.
