5 million gmail passwords hacked by Russians; Facebook and Twitter also have 2-step verification


Webroot is reporting that about 5 million gmail accounts were hacked (it’s happened before) by brute force, and gives information on 2-step verification on not only Google, but also Facebook, Twitter, and Microsoft Outlook, story by Richard Melick, link here.  We need to see banks adopt this technology. 
   
The Bitcoin Forum has a list of the names, but it is in Russian, in part. 
   
You can check if your gmail was compromised with the “Isleaked” site, here.

You can put in placeholders to avoid spelling out your entire email address.

A Fox station offered this and another link to check, and then had second thoughts, link here
