facebook, gmail and twitter accounts breached

Spiderlabs published an interesting article on this the other day. http://blog.spiderlabs.com/2013/12/look-what-i-found-moar-pony.html

The list has now appeared on pastebin and is being sold for 0.05 bitcoins.  (last time I checked they made about $600 so far).  

If you haven't already you may want to start looking at the strong authentication options for some of these services.

We're getting a number of requests regarding the data set. At this time Trustwave has not released nor will it release a complete set of the discovered data. Stay tuned for a post later today that will discuss what we will release and to whom. Any claim that any related information has been posted on Pastebin is false.

Per Spiderlabs Site. They aren't posting it to Pastebin..
