More than 8 million user emails and encrypted passwords has been dumped on the internet from the website Gamigo after 4 months of the actual breach. Gamingo already warned their users 4 months ago about the database breach on their website via forum and mass mails and automatically reset's every users passwords to some random character as a security measure.
According to the article posted on THN, the list of passwords which were screambled using a one-way cryptographic hash algorithm, were published earlier this month to a forum in the password-cracking website Inside Pro.
According to forbe, " he list also contained 8.2 million unique e-mail addresses, including 3 million American accounts from the US, 2.4 million accounts from Germany, and 1.3 million accounts from France."
PwnedList founder Steve Thomas said:
"It's the largest leak I've ever actually seen. When this breach originally happened, the data wasn't released, so it wasn't a big concern. Now eight million email addresses and passwords have been online, live data for any hacker to see."
If you are the existing user of Gamigo, you can check your email address if it is compromised already at "PwnedList."
With more than 8 million password being compromised, this hacktivity is the biggest of anything we've seen so far this year. Some of the major breach this year includes - Yahoo, eHarmony, Last.fm and LinkedIn.
