Hackers claim to have raided PSN, 2K, Origin, Windows Live mail

Group who DDOS'd Blizzard posts partial list of passwords & emails

DerpTrolling, the hacker collective which claimed responsibility for the DDOS attacks which crippled Blizzard's World of Warcraft servers over the weekend, has released a partial list of passwords and logins for various game-related services, including PSN and 2K accounts.

The group says that its list of obtained logins runs into the multiple millions, but has released a small 'proof' sample via Pastebin. Claiming to be acting in the interests of consumers, DerpTrolling has demanded that companies increase security in order to protect consumer information.

"We have 800,000 from 2K and 500,000 credit card data. In all of our raids we have a total of around 7 million usernames and passwords," a statement reported by CNET reads. "We have around 2 million Comcast accounts, 620,000 Twitter accounts, 1.2 million credentials belonging to the CIA domain, 200,000 Windows Live accounts, 3 million Facebook, 1.7 million EA origins accounts, etc."

The group has previously claimed responsibility for DDOS attacks on World of Tanks, League of Legends, EVE Online, Runescape and EA.com. The relevant companies have been contacted for confirmation, but changing passwords has been recommended.
