LulzSec said ‘these are random assortments from a collection, so don’t ask which site they’re from or how old they are, because we have no idea,’ adding that they didn’t know how many of the passwords worked. The list was previously removed by MediaFire, only to be re-uploaded by LulzSec.
One Twitter user, TheDancingMilk, tweeted that they gained access to major websites using a password and email from the list. ‘Got an Xbox Live, Paypal, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube…’ Others had Amazon accounts and Paypal accounts with 250 pounds.
