According to the latest hacking report, some alleged hackers have used malware to accumulate over 32 million microblogging site Twitter’s login credentials that are currently being traded on the dark web. However, the microblogging platform reportedly says that their systems have not been ruptured.The blog stated that they received a database comprising of 32 Million login credentials of Twitter.

As per the available information, the microblogging site also states that the credentials were ostensibly pilfered by some browser malware, instead of rupturing the Twitter’s database, for the reason of the information that most of the stolen passwords are only in plain text. Besides this, information regarding this hack is that it seems that greater part of the people who have been breached belongs to Russia, as 6 of the topmost 10 email domain names belonged to the country.

According to reports by LeakedSource, a site that guides hacked login credentials from data breaches, Twitter login credentials were being sold on the Darknet. The blog stated that they received a database containing 32 Million Twitter login credentials.

Based on the information available, the site adds that the credentials were stolen by browser malware, rather than breaching Twitter’s database, because of the fact that most of the stolen passwords are in plain text. Also, it seems that majority of the people who have been breached are from Russia, as 6 of the top 10 email domain names belonged to the country.

The actual hazard due to this hacking incident is for users who frequently re-use their passwords in several online websites. Recently, the developer of the popular social networking platform, Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg had a pair of his online accounts hacked because he had re-used his password, which was earlier leaked in the LinkedIn Data breach.
