Russian Hacker Selling 1.5 Million Facebook Accounts
According to Mashable, Verisign iDefense has uncovered a “cyber-crook on an electronic fraud forum selling 1.5 million Facebook accounts at a price of $25 per 1,000 accounts.” If the hacker’s claims are true, the 1.5 million accounts represent approximately 1 in every 300 Facebook users.
It is not yet known who the Facebook account holders are, but just to be safe, ReputationDefender recommends that you change your Facebook password immediately.
- Login to your Facebook account.
- Click the Account tab in the upper right hand corner of your profile and select Account Settings.
- Select the Change option next to Password and you will be prompted to input your old password and select a new one.
