Yesterday, reports emerged that 10,000 Hotmail account addresses and passwords had been posted to the site PasteBin.com. Today, BBC News revealed that it has discovered another incriminating list containing log-in information for 20,000 additional e-mail addresses. The new batch, though, not only includes information from compromised Hotmail accounts, but also from Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, and several other major e-mail providers.

Personal advice:
If you haven’t change your free email account password yet, please DO IT RIGHT NOW.
