Hacker 'selling 1.5 million stolen Facebook users' login details on the black market'
A hacker has put 1.5million stolen Facebook accounts up for sale on the black market, an internet security firm has claimed.
Researchers at VeriSign’s iDefense Labs said they had found the stolen or bogus accounts on a Russian forum called Carder.su.
A hacker called 'kirllos' was offering log-in data of thousands of Facebook users at bargain basement prices.
Rick Howard director of iDefense, said the case points to a boom in the illegal trading of social networking accounts from Eastern Europe to the U.S.
