320 Million hashed passwords decrypted!
The anonymous group of cracktivists called CynoSure Prime reversed the 11 million leaked hashed passwords from Ashley Madison website 2 years ago. CynoSure Prime have now managed to do it again only this time to 320 million hashed passwords. These passwords were dumped by Troy Hunt who is an Australian researcher for HaveIBeenPwned.
Hunt released the hashed passwords in the hope that people would change their ways when it comes to re-using passwords. Thousands and thousands of people insist on using 1 password for everything which is very unsafe and unsecure. The challenge was accepted by the researchers CynoSure Prime, also a German IT security PhD student @m33x and infoseccer Royce Williams.
