    Russian Hacker Selling Facebook Accounts

    Post by sunnysideup on Sat Apr 24, 2010 4:22 pm

    Do you have a facebook account, if so check this out

    http://mashable.com/2010/04/23/hacker-facebook/

    A hacker who calls himself Kirllos has obtained and is now offering to sell 1.5 million Facebook IDs at astonishingly low prices — $25 per 1000 IDs for users with fewer than 10 friends and $45 per 1000 IDs for users with more than 10 friends — according to researchers at VeriSign’s iDefense. Looking at the numbers, Kirllos has stolen the IDs of one out of every 300 Facebook users.

    Information for sale includes login credentials; whether or not the e-mail addresses and passwords are legitimate is currently unknown. Typically, this information would be sold for between $1 and $20 per account, according to data from Symantec. Currently, around 700,000 accounts have been sold. The threads where the accounts are being sold have been removed, as far as we are able to tell.

    The users whose e-mail addresses and passwords have been compromised risk having their identities stolen, but they could also become targets of more insidious scams. As always, we will keep you updated about any Facebook scams that come across our news desk.

    Hacking Facebook isn’t a new hobby for this person. Here’s a screenshot of another offer the hacker previously made on a forum earlier this year; then, he was then selling 100,000 hacked accounts from users around the world:

    I don't have a Facebook account and I don't want one. One of my daughters suggested just last week that I get one, told her I just wasn't interested in that kind of stuff. I will pass the info on to them. Thanks for this story.

    You are welcome... I do have an account but I've never downloaded or installed the third party applications. Besides it gets to be a big pain, although, you can check up on what the 'kids' are doing. :)
