Default 770 million email addresses and passwords uncovered

Quote:
Infosec researcher Troy Hunt has revealed that more than 700 million email addresses have been floating around 'a popular hacker forum' - along with a very large number of plain text passwords.

The data dump, which Hunt has uploaded to his Have I Been Pwned site for people to check if they're included, comprises '1,160,253,228 unique combinations of email addresses and passwords', in Hunt's words.

My 2 current accounts are safe, but apparently the one I've used in high school up until 2014 has been compromised. Do I care to make security measures? I don't think I've ever shared personal information that could affect me in any meaningful way and they can send spam for all I care as it's not longer in use.

My main email account is safe, the other one was compromised so I've changed the password. Already have 2 factor verification on as well but just to be safe.

My main e-mail is safe, my un-official one wasn't. Now they are both.

It's ironic, from the three email adresses I use. Only my Gmail account seems compromised. Weirdest is that it was also part of a manga/animé forum, one I have never heard of. Guess it might be a good thing that I checked it. Changed a couple of my passwords.
