Leaked Passwords Twitter Had Been Released a Year Ago

On Tuesday, Anonymous hackers released a list of more than 58,000 passwords of Twitter accounts. Several Brazilian providers of e-mails and user names in Portuguese were among those affected, but it seems that it was just an urban legend. According to the organization SaferNet Brazil, much of the passwords was a leaked list for almost a year.
SaferNet analyzed the alleged leaked passwords and found that, of the 58,900 entries, 21,900 were duplicated or empty. This was also the position of the advice of Twitter, who responded in two hours after the news run the world. Among the 37 000 unique accounts, 23,400 were present in an old list of 62,000 passwords published by LulzSec in June 2011. The 13,500 remaining profiles were spammers, most accounts that have been suspended by Twitter.
Some users claimed to have gained access to some of the accounts on the list. And how many keep the bad practice of using the same combination in all services, exposed emails were also accessible through passwords disclosed in the archives. Anyway, Twitter forced password resets for all who have had their accounts affected.
Noteworthy is the fact that, even almost a year after the original leak of passwords, many of logins remain accessible. Who cares about security on the Internet, right?
