If recent reports are correct, the login details of more than 32 million Twitter users are now being sold on the dark web for 10 bitcoins ($5,800). Usernames, email addresses and plain-text passwords could all be available.
LeakedSource, a data breach indexer, has received a copy of the file from Tessa88, the same online user who hacked data from Russian social media network VK a few weeks ago. However, Twitter strongly denies that this information was obtained through a data breach. It is therefore most likely that the personal logins were attained through the use of malware.
Social media users are encouraged to change their passwords for all of their accounts, across all platforms, to ensure security.
