Get changing your passwords :/

Millions of accounts on the French video-sharing site Dailymotion have been hacked, with details including email addresses and usernames reportedly stolen.

An unknown hacker extracted 85.2 million unique email addresses and usernames from Dailymotion, according to LeakedSource. Around one-in-five accounts, about 18.3 million, had associated passwords. The passwords were hashed, meaning they were scrambled and so not easy to read, Dailymotion users are still at risk of phishing attacks.

It's OK, many of them will be TalkTalk customers, and they have had all their details stolen loads of times, so they are used to it.
TT are currently denying that last weeks DOS attack on customer routers allowed the crims to steal everyones log in details and passwords, despite security firms saying otherwise.

I would like to know how someone could download the whole database without detection. 85.2 million would have taken a long time to list let alone save.

An ASCII character in 8-bit ASCII encoding is 8 bits or 1 byte of data. Lets be conservative and say each email address is 20 character long and thus 20 bytes - and the same for the passwords - 20bytes - so each combination is 40 bytes.

85.2 million x 40 bytes = roughly 3.2GB - less than a film and thus, download and stolen in seconds.

Obviously this is the basic stealing of the file, it might take a while to get in and find it etc but you get my point.

Not really considering they would be accessing an SQL database. This would take considerably longer and i am talking a little longer than what you are thinking.

I worry that the hackers are overunning the security specialist and we are all facing increasing risks every day.
