Aparently Collection#1 is not very new.

krebsonsecurity said:

Sanixer said Collection#1 consists of data pulled from a huge number of hacked sites, and was not exactly his “freshest” offering. Rather, he sort of steered me away from that archive, suggesting that — unlike most of his other wares — Collection #1 was at least 2-3 years old. His other password packages, which he said are not all pictured in the above screen shot and total more than 4 terabytes in size, are less than a year old, Sanixer explained.

Hmm interesting, but I don't think people thought it was a hack that happened this year. It consists of so many databases..

Yeah, I feel like this is significant because of sheer volume of databases collected into one, not really the fact that any of that data contained within is anything uniquely new or special.

i want to know if my "pwned" password is correct or if it's a fake password sent to a phishing try (lot of time ago)

Yes... but....including 773 million unique email addresses alongside passwords those addresses had used on other breached services..... Unique are unique!!!

It was always unlikely that it contained new data. Such a huge volume of passwords from various sources takes time to be collected.

It's mainly combo list of previous database leaks... It would be interesting to see what collections #2 - #5 have to offer, since some of them are even bigger than #1. It would be nice to finally see Yahoo database leak Smile
