Nepal Hackers posts 10,000 stolen Facebook accounts online

A hacking group from Nepal known as TeamSwaStika, has published 10,000 stolen Facebook accounts on Pastebin for everyone to see and take advantage of.

The group appears to have obtained the stolen accounting data, through either phishing, or data mining malware-infected hosts for Facebook credentials. Another alternative would be that they have purchased the cache containing the stolen credentials from a specific service reselling accounting data, as these services are quite popular within the cybercrime ecosystem nowadays.

As a precaution, Facebook users are advised to periodically change their passwords from a malware-free host.
