Dating site passwords stolen

The passwords were stolen in “hashed” form, meaning some computing work was required to convert them back into usable passwords.

A database containing details of more than 20 Million users of a Russian-based online dating website has been allegedly stolen by a hacker and made publicly available for sale through an online forum.

The development followed a scramble by Linked In members to change their passwords when it emerged hackers were working to “crack” a list of 6.5 million.

Many were also urged to change their passwords for other services if they had reused the same one across the web.

Following an investigation, Linked In admitted its security had been breached late on Wednesday.

“We can confirm that some of the passwords that were compromised correspond to Linked In accounts,” said Vicente Silveira, a spokesman for the professional network, whose more than 150 million members worldwide include the Prime Minister.

A Microsoft spokesperson said: "Unfortunately, there are places on the internet where leaked and stolen credentials are posted, and when we come across these or someone sends them to us, we act to protect customers.

Microsoft has security measures in place to detect account compromise and requires additional information to verify the account owner and help them regain sole access to their account.” The Independent's bitcoin group on Facebook is the best place to follow the latest discussions and developments in cryptocurrency.

Linked In, a popular professional networking site, and e Harmony, a popular dating site, confirmed yesterday, June 6, that passwords associated with its accounts were compromised.
