As if the holiday season hasn’t been hard enough on gamers and online users alike, it seems that hackers claiming affiliation with the infamous Anonymous hacking collective have been busy playing Santa. On Friday the group dumped a document that specified approximately 13,000 Username/Password combinations. The document found posted on Ghostbin appears to detail both usernames/passwords as well as credit card information. This comes at a time when hackers seem to be stepping up their game with LizardSquad taking down both the PlayStation network, and XBOX live over Christmas.
Although several Anonymous members are claiming this had nothing to do with the group, the facts are not completely clear.
Interested if this data theft effects you? Well there is decent chance with a laundry list of effected sites:
If you are a user of any of these sites now would be a good time to update your password(s) and keep an eye on your credit card charges.
