Godzilla sized cache of personal data for sake

Written by Nick Farrell



Biggest data cybercrime in history

The proceeds of the single largest data breach in cybercrime history have gone on sale.

Security firm Hold Security has stumbled upon a "mind boggling" and "Godzilla-sized" cache of personal data put up for sale on the online black market by hackers. More than 360 million accounts and around 1.25 billion email addresses nicked from Adobe users and Cupid media has gone on sale.

Alex Holden, chief information security officer of Hold Security said that the sheer volume is overwhelming. Hold Security says that the email addresses came from all major providers including Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, and that many non-profit organizations and almost all Fortune 500 companies had been affected.
