According to a security expert, tens of millions of usernames and passwords have been hacked, concerning email accounts with Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo, with the details traded online.

 

The report says that data from somewhere in the region of 97 million accounts have been swiped.

 

It looks like personal information from around 40 million Yahoo Mail accounts, 33 million Hotmail accounts and 24 million Gmail accounts have been accessed.

 

You can read Hold Security's full report on this breach, right here, if you want to know more.

 

Obviously, it'd be a good time to update your password if you have accounts with any of those companies

Or even 3 weeks ago when it actually happened. Nothing like timely reporting eh?

Really? You'd have to have been on Mars not to have caught this story when it broke a few weeks ago.
