A Russian gang has amassed the world’s biggest collection of stolen user names and passwords. Online security research firm Hold Security told The New York Times that the Russian gang has a collection of 1.2 billion user name and password combinations. That means the gang can access Internet credentials of those 1.2 billion users. What’s more, it also has captured over 500 million email addresses.

Even Fortune 500 companies fell victims to Russian hackers

Milwaukee-based Hold Security said the records, including confidential material, were collected from more than 420,000 websites. Websites affected include small Internet sites as well as household names. Hold Security has a strong track record of uncovering major hacks. Last year, the security specialist was the first to report that millions of users accounts at Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE) were compromised.
