If Your Email Address or username Is On This List, Change Your Password Right Away



More than 700 million e-mail accounts have had their e-mail addresses leaked by a spambot - and the information is being used to spread dangerous banking malware.Initially uncovered by the Paris-based security researcher (Benkow), it contains two separate storage of data, one simply of email addresses, and the second more serious set contains addresses and passwords.
