Over 360 million MySpace account details have gone up for sale on the dark web, reports TechWeekEurope.co.uk. The passwords were stored using SHA1 algorithms, which are considered fairly simple to decrypt, and did not use ‘salting’ techniques – the process of involving random data to make decryption more difficult. Of the passwords collected, only a few thousand were over 10 characters in length, while virtually none contained an upper-case character, and precious few contained numerical entries. The most popular passwords were password1, abc123 and 123456 – credentials banned by Hotmail since 2011.
