Russian crime ring amasses over a Billion credentials

Experts at Hold Security firm discovered a Russian group of hackers that collected 1.2B stolen credentials obtained in different data breaches worldwide.


I would seem that the series of security breaches so well exposed by Brian Krebs has resulted in an accumulation of the data into a database located in southern Russia. A small group of people are holding on to it.

“The hacking ring is based in a small city in south central Russia, the region flanked by Kazakhstan and Mongolia. The group includes fewer than a dozen men in their 20s who know one another personally — not just virtually. Their computer servers are thought to be in Russia.” reports the New York post.
