Time to change passwords: 5 million Gmail passwords published.



If you are a Gmail user, it might be time to change your password. According to this report, a member of a Russian Bitcoin forum has posted almost 5 million Gmail passwords, with around 60% reported to be still working.  According to Google, their Gmail servers were not compromised. Instead, the list was compiled from a series of  hacking and phishing attempts that stole data from individual users.

Still, it won’t hurt to just change your password.
