Security researchers have found 26 billion leaked records from brands such as Twitter, Adobe, LinkedIn and Myspace in the largest known data leak ever. The discovery was made by Bob Dyachenko and the team at Cybernews, who described the leak as the “supermassive mother of all breaches”. Much of the data comes from previous breaches, but the team believes it contains new unpublished data. The leak includes personal data, government organisation records and more. Tencent QQ, Weibo, Myspace, Twitter and LinkedIn had the most records in the leak.
US healthcare company, Change Healthcare, has been targeted by the hacker collective ALPHV/Blackcat, which claimed to have stolen sensitive health data of millions of Americans.
