Brian Krebs’s Q&A on the Reported Theft of 1.2 Billion Email Accounts

Brian Krebs:

Q: Is this for real?

A: Alex isn’t keen on disclosing his methods, but I have seen his research and data firsthand and can say it’s definitely for real. Without spilling his secrets or methods, it is clear that he has a first-hand view on the day-to-day activities of some very active organized cybercrime networks and actors.

Russell Brandom at The Verge cast some well-reasoned skepticism on Hold Security’s claims, but Krebs vouching for them is huge.
