‘The mother of all breaches’ – 26 billion records leaked including stolen user logins, so may we suggest you finally change that old password?

If you’re still hanging on to that old password, here’s some news that should change your mind: Cybersecurity researcher Bob Dyachenko and the team over at Cybernews have discovered an open instance containing a gigantic 12TB of user data, in what they’re referring to as the “mother of all breaches”, and it seems like it might be the biggest user information leak yet.

While the bulk of the data seems to be made up of information already known to be leaked, in a sort of greatest hits package of stolen info (via PC World), the assumption is that new data is likely to be included too.
