Tessa88 is selling the Twitter dump database for 10 bitcoin, $5820 approx. 

The seller said they obtained 379 million accounts as early as 2015. That would be far more than its 310 million monthly active users, but could account for cumulative accounts, such as inactive users.

After reviewing the portion of leaked, on the blog post LeakedSource says that Twitter was beached. 
"The explanation for this is that tens of millions of people have become infected by malware, and the malware sent every saved username and password from browsers like Chrome and Firefox back to the hackers from all websites including Twitter," the blog post said.

A Twitter spokesperson said in a prepared statement:"A number of other online services have seen millions of passwords stolen in the past several weeks. We recommend people use a unique, strong password for Twitter. We detail other steps people can take to keep their accounts secure on our help center."

Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts hacked

Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts hacked
Facebook CEO's Mark Zuckerberg's other social accounts has been hacked last day by a hacking team called "OurMine Team". Concerntrating on Facebook, it seems that he forgot his other social media's accounts.

This week, Zuckerberg's twitter and Pinterest showing a tag line written "Hacked by OurMine Team ".
Hacker's group says that they have got the logins of Zuckerberg's account's from the LinkedIn Database dump, which was leaked few weeks ago.

We don’t know for sure how OurMine Team pulled off the hacks, but the group is claiming it was all thanks to the LinkedIn password dump from a few weeks ago. Millions of LinkedIn user account details leaked online last month, with the company reacting by invalidating the credentials and contacting affected members to reset their passwords. But the story doesn’t end there, because as we all know, many people like to reuse the same password on different online services.

Same thing done by Zuckerberg- " Used Same Passwords for other accounts too".

At the mean time Twitter account of Zuckerberg @finkdaccount had been suspended, and tweets were deleted.

This is the best reminder yet that if you have a LinkedIn account, you should go ahead and change your password there, and everywhere else. In fact, you should make it a habit to regularly change your passwords on all your online accounts. And if that is too much of a pain, at the very least make a habit of using different passwords.

Data Breached: Whatsapp, Telegram, MySpace, Tumblr, LinkedIn and TeamViewer

Data Breached: Whatsapp, Telegram, MySpace, Tumblr, LinkedIn and TeamViewer
Its not wrong if we call this week as a "Data Breached' week. Security is the very important factors for any organizations, but then also hackers able to breach the system security.
Here are some major Data Breached that happens this week.

#1 Biggest Breached: 427 Millions MySpace Password leaks.

On Tuesday, Myspace confirmed that the company was hacked in 2013 and suffered a major data breached and that the stolen Myspace username and password combinations have been made available for sale in an online hacker forum.

The hacker, nicknamed Peace, who is selling the database of about 360 Million Myspace accounts with 427 million passwords online.

MySpace said that they are taking significant steps to protect users privacy, and also alert all users to change their passwords.

#2 65 Millions Tumblr Password are on sale.

Earlier this month the micro-blogging and social network site admitted customer details had been compromised back in 2013, but didn’t say how many accounts were affected.

Now the whole database is on sale on dark web. However the database for sale includes email addresses and passwords. However, the passwords are hashed, a process that turns them into a string of digits rather than storing them as plain text.

#3 TeamViewer user claim Accounts hacked, Service goes Offline.

A remote desktop connection software that allows users to share screens and allow remote access from anywhere in the world. In the past 24 hours, many customers have made unverified claims that their computers were maliciously accessed by hackers. According to these sources, hackers are using TeamViewer to access the computers late at night, and accessing bank accounts using saved browser passwords, or installing forms of ransomware.

Over the past 24 hours, customers have taken their concerns to Reddit to share their thoughts and look for answers. There are user reports of both Paypal and bank accounts being hacked.
Currently the site is been restored, TeamViewer claimed in several tweets that there were no breaches of security. TeamViewer’s last official comment on the rising issues of hackers was on May 23 in their press release.

#4 Hacker hijack Whatsapp and Telegram accounts
Whatsapp and telegram both claim to be secured service and for this they implemented End-to-End encryption by default.
But, sometimes it’s not the application that leads to security vulnerabilities, it’s something else entirely. In this case, that “something else” is Signaling System 7 (SS7), a global network of carriers that acts as a central hub to connect the world
Worst is we can't fix SS7

SS7 is a global network of telecom companies, which means none of them actually own, or govern it. Instead, any change is met with miles of red tape and a lack of decent options aside from global compliance to actually get things done. It’s a mess, and it’ll remain that way until someone, or a group, is appointed to govern and maintain it. Until then, the vulnerability will remain.

Video POC
Hackers have demonstrated the attack, check below.

This not end here only, last week 164,611,595 LinkedIn accounts logins were also stolen by hackers. LinkedIn was first targeted in 2012 but the data only started to be sold on the dark web this month.

These are the latest systems comprise news and now users have to give much attention to there online accounts.
