The breach involved 87 gigabytes of data including almost 2.7 billion rows of email addresses and passwords spanning at least 772,904,991 email accounts and 21,222,975 unique passwords. The data is allegedly a collection of more than 2,000 leaked databases.
The date of the breach was reported as Jan. 7. The data was uploaded to the popular cloud service MEGA, which has since been taken down. The data was also being distributed on a popular public hacking forum.
“They weren’t even for sale; they were just available for anyone to take,” Wired.com noted.

Have you been affected?
Just input your username and password into this search to find out.
Did you leave something out in your post?
Like the link to "this search"...
Q. Will you publish the data in collections #2 through #5? Until this blog post went out, I wasn't even aware there were subsequent collections. I do have those now and I need to make a call on what to do with them after investigating them further.
Thats a hell of a breach, who could possibly have that many credentials in 1 database to hack?
