The Market for Stolen Passwords


NPR

Brian Krebs, a journalist and cybersecurity expert, recently published this list. It has hundreds of company names, in alphabetical order. And next to each name is a price.

This list comes from a site on the dark web where people buy and sell stolen usernames and passwords. It’s a price list.

On today’s show, we talk to Krebs about this list, and what it tells us about the market for your stolen passwords.
