I have merely named a few examples of how this Email Database information can be used by the criminals, and unfortunately there are many more that I have not listed here. But as I said earlier, the bad news did not stop there I am sure that you have seen news reports and articles within the past month, referring to a recent data breach that was discovered involving Email Database roughly a dozen individuals that gained access to over 1.2 Billion unique email addresses and passwords.
This particular event literally dwarfs in comparison all Email Database that I have mentioned thus far in this article. Now just to put into perspective what that means to all of us. Most all of our online accounts now days are accessed via email address and password. In the Email Database hands of an Identity Thief, the possibilities are almost endless in how this could be used, since every piece of our personal information is now stored digitally somewhere.
Web Bots have and will continue to be created to utilize this Email Database treasure trove of information that the criminals have in their possession. Recall the Home Depot incident that was brought to our attention just this week, which I might add has been forecasted to be even larger than the Target breach affecting 110 Million people. Because this occurred in Email Database Russia makes matters even worse for us, given there has not been a history of prosecution of this crime, and the criminals go unhindered to carry out their plans of using as well as reselling this information on the Identity Theft Market.
