26 million LiveJournal credentials leaked online, sold on the dark web

LiveJournal credentials were obtained in a 2014 hack, but leaked online earlier this month.

According to Have I Been Pwned (HIBP), the data contained the usernames, emails, and plaintext passwords of 26,372,781 LiveJournal users. LiveJournal users can visit the HIBP portal and check if their credentials have been included in the data trove stolen by hackers back in 2014. Even if the LiveJournal database is old, has circulated in private, and has been abused for years, this doesn’t mean users should slack on their personal security.
