MySpace and Tumblr hit by ‘mega breach’ as millions of passwords end up for sale on the dark web:

The BBC reports it this way:

Hundreds of millions of hacked account details from social networks MySpace and Tumblr have been advertised for sale online.

The incident comes the same month it emerged that a four-year-old database containing more than 167 million LinkedIn IDs had been traded online.

One expert said it was “intriguing” all had emerged in such a short period.

The socials are abuzz.
The millennials got robbed.
Passwords abound.
An IP static fuzz..
