Russian hackers have amassed over a billion stolen Internet identities ? the largest cyber-haul ever. We look at the stakes in the mega-hack.
Shockaroo headlines on the Internet security front yesterday.  A Russian gang has reportedly stolen a billion-plus Internet credentials, identities, from almost half a million websites.  More than possibly websites that you are on.  More than possibly your credentials ? name, passwords.  The keys to your Internet kingdom.  On the one hand, we are almost beyond being shocked at Internet security breakdowns.  It can look like Swiss cheese out there.  On the other hand, 1.2 billion stolen?  Is that a national security issue?  This hour, On Point:  the mega Internet credential heist, and what it means.

If the Russians keep up, they'll start approaching the NSA.

Maybe they are on contract with the NSA.
I sort of wonder. For real.
If the Government operates like US corporations then the best way around restrictions is to just operate overseas.

Well we know that the CIA and NSA employ "foreign assets".
Now that they are spying on US citizens you have to wonder about "cyber attacks" from overseas.
