Another day, another hack. It seems like I'm saying this every day, but your accounts could be at risk. It came to light yesterday thanks to one security researcher. He just did something that could have the FBI busting down his door.
A man named Mark Burnett just leaked 10 million usernames and passwords onto the Internet and yours could be one of them. He claims to be doing the right thing, but this could have dire consequences.
Perhaps "leak" isn't the right word here. Burnett is a security researcher that specializes in passwords. He claims that these passwords and usernames have been available for years on the Internet, in plain text. So if your usernames and passwords show up on this list, then you have some serious security problems on your hands.
