A massive database leak -- dubbed Collection #1 -- has made its way to hacking forums, exposing millions of email addresses and passwords. The news was first shared by Troy Hunt -- the man behind Have I Been Pwned? -- who explains that the leak comprises, "many different individual data breaches from literally thousands of different sources".
Hunt explains that there are "1,160,253,228 unique combinations of email addresses and passwords", so there are a very large number of people that may have been affected by the leak.

“Collection #1” Data Breach Analysis – Part 2

source: “Collection #1” Data Breach Analysis – Part 2

On January 19th we downloaded Collection #1 to make statistics on its content (you might find more information here). During these days we finished the two main activities to be able to answer some more questions about its data: (i) ELK import and (ii) building of simple views to visualise desired information. The following image shows a final general importing view mostly focused on Collection#1 interesting folders (as described on Part1). In this post, I’d like to give my second personal overview without getting into details such as: private domains, government domains, domains belonging to municipalities and so on. A professional report (and not a personal blog post) on that topic might be available in few days in a special session.
