Myspace hacked – And why you should care


Myspace hacked – And why you should care

While you may not have logged into Myspace for years, a recent security breach may affect you.

More than 360 million account details were stolen, according to, a paid hacker search engine. If you created your account before June 11, 2013, your login details could be up for sale online.

Time, Inc. says that it was alerted to a hack in which millions of usernames, passwords, and e-mail addresses were acquired. As some of these accounts had a second password attached to them, it’s estimated that the number of compromised passwords stands at more than 427 million.

Myspace says a Russian hacker named "Peace" is responsible for the breach. Peace has previously been responsible for hacks on LinkedIn and Tumblr, but this could possibly be the largest hack ever.

Myspace is currently contacting users affected by this breach. However, if you’ve moved away from the e-mail address associated with that account, that measure won’t be too helpful. If you use your old Myspace password for other accounts, you should change them all promptly.
