"I'd need to see a complete data set to make an emphatic call on it." If the data is accurate, it would mark one of the largest data breaches of the year behind Yahoo, which in October blamed state-sponsored hackers for compromising at least 500 million accounts in late 2014 (see Massive Yahoo Data Breach Shatters Records).Based in Sydney, he is Managing Editor for Security and Technology for Information Security Media Group.Prior to ISMG, he worked from London and Sydney covering computer security and privacy for International Data Group.
