And now and gmail.com: the network is laid out a database of 5 million addresses

Or how to check email for hacking

Проверить email на взлом

The popular mail service from Google could not avoid the repetition of the situation with the laying out of quite impressive databases with logins and passwords, which recently happened with Yandex and Mail.ru.

The network has a database with addresses of boxes and passwords for 4929090 accounts gmail.com.

The actuality of the database has not been verified, but more than 60% of valid pairs are reported: mail: password.

In comments to the previous records, users reasonably noticed that the trade of such bases is far from new, and that the rumor was raised here.

It's hard not to agree with this, but again, it can be seen from the comments that many users found their accounts in these databases, often with actual passwords, after which they changed passwords and began to pay more attention to the security of their mailboxes.

Therefore, I think it is not superfluous to highlight the appearance of this base in free access in the network.

Judging by the fact that there are databases from many services, messages from Yandex and Mail.ru are correct, and this is not the result of the leak, but the consequences of phishing attacks, malicious software, the use of weak passwords and other security errors when dealing with mail with side of the users themselves.

Therefore, it is recommended to change passwords on your mailbox for preventive purposes , even if it does not use the services of yandex.mail, mail.ru or gmail.

By tradition, I will remind existing services at the moment to check their mail for availability in databases.

Surely they will soon be replenished with the base of gmail addresses:
