List of data breaches and cyber attacks in June 2016 (289,000,000+ records leaked)

Data breach costs surge 29% to $4M

This month’s list is a little earlier than usual, so I expect that I’ll be updating it more than usual over the remainder of the month. Keep revisiting it to see new additions.

It’s been an interesting month. While there haven’t been any large-scale data breaches (that we’re aware of) so far this month, there have been several data dumps posted online from previous breaches.

One of these dumps included the 51 million iMesh passwords that were stolen from a breach back in September 2013. Now, if the world’s population practised good password security and used unique passwords for every online account they have, this wouldn’t be much of an issue, especially since iMesh no longer exists. However, password reuse is as common as the air, and those who had an iMesh account in 2013 may want to consider changing their login credentials on sites where they’ve used the same password.
