The Hacker News reported "a massive database of 630 million email addresses used by a spambot to send large amounts of spam to has been published online in what appears to be one of the biggest data dumps of its kind.
"A French security researcher, who uses online handle Benkow, spotted the database on an 'open and accessible' server containing a vast amount of email addresses, along with millions of SMTP credentials from around the world.
