a billion credentials is stolen
- and then what?

It somehow seems nonconsequential. So spammers send more spam - so what.

Say, when Target got hacked into, the damage was about 100M - although we do not know how this damage is calculated, but at least we know there was damage.

There is a disconnect between the media coverage of the sizes on the breaches, and the lack of media coverage of the consequences.

While it's good Hold Security has told us about this, I feel like its silence on many counts seems a bit self serving. It claims that some are still vulnerable, which makes sense not to name and shame them, since it could result in people's updated accounts being re-exploited. 

However, the fact that it signed NDAs for some companies seems like it received some sort of payoff to protect their reputation(s). If it was really trying to help the consumer, it would let us know of the worst culprits of lax security.

SQL injection attacks?
How is it that sites are still vulnerable to SQL injection attacks?  Its hard to believe this is still one of the main threats to website security.

The change
Cybercrime is showing an increasing interest in the sale of stolen personal information, including user's credentials and emails that are considered precious commodities in the underground.

The number of data breaches is tripled 

The amount of data this ring collected spotlights on the necessity to improve protection of our digital identities. Username and passwords are no more enough, people must be trained to know the threats, the risks and to teach them best practices.

We need a layered approach to cyber security ... cybercrime is even more dangerous ... let's imagine what an attacker can do with this information ... amazing.

This is not held for the first time in the history of the world, we heard many times like this news. The Russian internet security department should be more aware of it. The homework help online provides the great services for the students who are seeking help for their academic assignment. I will comeback here soon for more details.
