18 Jul Thousands of Mega Login Details Compromised, Exposing User Files
Digita Security founder Patrick Wardle warned this week that he had found a text file containing thousands of credentials for accounts associated with New Zealand-based file storage service Mega.
ZDNet says it was able to confirm that the logins were real by calling up several users. It was additionally revealed that the listings date back to 2013, and as recently as January.
Researchers say that with the login details now public, user files in Mega storages are in danger of being compromised, and hackers are likely to try the credentials on other websites as well.
The company assured that the list comprises only 0.0001 percent of our 115 million registered users and they are planning to roll out two-factor authentication soon, but did not confirm when.
