Do you have a Gmail account? This may interest you! A Russian cybersecurity forum has published a file containing more than 5 million Gmail accounts.
According to several experts, more than 60% of the username and password combinations were valid. However, Google says that the information is “outdated“, that is, these accounts have been suspended or the users no longer access them.
In a statement, Google said that it has no evidence that its systems have been compromised, but explains that “whenever we become aware that accounts may have been compromised, we take steps to help those users secure their accounts.“
The file published mainly contains British, Spanish and Russian accounts. If you want to know whether your account is on the list of those affected, you can do so here.
