And now gmail.com: a network of 5,000,000 addresses has been posted on the network
Or how to check email for hacking
The popular email service from Google could not avoid repeating the situation with laying out pretty impressive databases with logins and passwords, which recently happened with Yandex and Mail.ru.
A network has appeared in the network with the addresses of mailboxes and passwords for 4929090 gmail.com accounts.
The relevance of the database has not been verified, but more than 60% of valid mail: password pairs are reported.
In the comments on previous posts, users reasonably noticed that trading in such databases is far from news, and that they supposedly made a fuss about it.
It is difficult to disagree with this, but again, the comments show that many users found their accounts in these databases, often with current passwords, after which they changed passwords and began to be more careful about the security of their mailboxes.
Therefore, I think it is not superfluous to cover the appearance of this base in the public domain.
Judging by the fact that databases from many services appear, messages from Yandex and Mail.ru are correct, and this is not the result of a leak, but the consequences of phishing attacks, malware, the use of weak passwords and other security errors when working with mail from sides of the users themselves.
Therefore, it is recommended for prophylactic purposes to change passwords on your mailbox , even if it does not use the services yandex.mail, mail.ru or gmail.
By tradition, I remind you of the currently existing services for checking your mail for availability in the databases.
Surely they will soon replenish with the base of gmail addresses:
