Data Breach

4.5 billion records stolen by cyber criminals

Reports have been confirmed that over four billion records from 500 million addresses have been stolen by by a Russian group.  From buying a set of stolen details on a Dark Web Site the gang was able to install malware on systems using both social media and email exploits. These infected systems were then used to expand the theft as their botnet grew through SQL injection attacks and other vulnerabilities enabling them to steal more data from more websites.
