Only a week after one of Russia's largest social media sites, VK, was hacked, millions of Twitter accounts have also been hacked, according to the IT newspaper TechCrunch.
Over 32 million Twitter users may therefore have had their personal details spread online, through the search engine Leakedsource, which is specializing in hacked information, where users can pay to gain access to hacked passwords.
The hacker seems to be the same one who extracted information from the Russian site VK last week, and most of the affected Twitter users are in Russia, writes TechCrunch.
Twitter and VK are far from the only social networks that are struggling with security breaches. In mid-May also information from over 100 million LinkedIn accounts were shared online.
The information came from a security breach in 2012, and the company confirms that they are trying to get in touch with the affected users so that they can change their passwords, writes TechCrunch.
If you have a Twitter account, now would be a good time to change your password.
