Over 32 Million Twitter IDs & Passwords Leaked

Security firm called LeakedSource is reporting that it has obtained around 32 million Twitter account credentials from a hacker named Tessa88 for 10 Bitcoins on the dark web.

The hacker claims he has passwords, emails and other details of 379 million Twitter users. Since Twitter’s user base is around 310 million, the data may also contain information related to the deleted accounts. The security firm says that after removing duplicates, it now has details of over 32 million Twitter users.

Incidentally, the account of Twitter co-founder was also hacked yesterday. It is possible that his credential may have been acquired by the hackers from the leaked data although for now there is no confirmation for it.

According to the blog, the leaked data contains usernames, email addresses, and plain text passwords. It adds that the breach was not into Twitter’s systems. Instead it was a malware that affected millions of browsers and stole the credentials.

Twitter has responded to the report. A spokesperson told Reuters that they are “confident that usernames and credentials were not obtained by a data breach, (and that) systems have not been breached”.

The website says that the leaked passwords are in plain text form, which means they are without any encryption or hashing. Twitter, Google, or any other websites don’t store passwords in plain text. Thus Twitter’s statement saying there “has been no breach in its system” sounds accurate.

Over 32 million Twitter IDs & passwords leaked, Twitter says don’t worry.
