16 million German email accounts Compromised

by FFE EU News Staff

 

hackGerman’s Federal Office for Online Security (BSI) reported on Tuesday that around 16 million email accounts have been stolen in Germany.

 

BSI compiled this information from law enforcement agencies and research institutions, but refused to give further information on their sources. The agency said that half of the accounts stolen ended in .de, meaning they were German-based email addresses.

 

To check if your website has been compromised, BSI has set up a database of the stolen email addresses. If your address appears on the list, then your computer may have been likely infected with malicious software without your knowledge.

 

BSI advised the public to digitally clean their devices and change the passwords to their online accounts.
