Russian criminals steal 1.2 billion passwords

Russian criminals have stolen 1.2 billion Internet user names and passwords, amassing what could be the largest collection of stolen digital
credentials in history, a respected security firm said Tuesday.

Hold Security founder Alex Holden told CNNMoney that the trove includes credentials gathered from over 420,000 websites — both smaller sites as well
as “household names.” The criminals didn’t breach any major email providers, he said.
