2 Million Stolen Facebook, Yahoo And Google Passwords Posted Online

More than 2 million passwords for sites including Facebook, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google have been stolen and posted online, BCC reports.

The "ethical hackers" at security firm Trustwave's SpiderLabs blog discovered the trove of login credentials, email credentials and passwords on Tuesday.

Security experts told BBC that a criminal gang may be behind the security breach. The stolen information can be used to extract people's personal information from the websites, which can then be sold, according to BBC.
