HIBP adds Tumblr, Fling

By Richard Chirgwin, 30 May 2016

Troy Hunt's completed his analysis of the Tumblr breach for “Have I Been Pwned?”, and reckons it contains more than 65 million records.

While that's nowhere near the 360 million MySpace records breached, the Tumblr dump probably contains more active records. As Hunt writes, “c'mon, it's MySpace and you know it's going to date back a way”.

Another 40 million records have landed in Hunt's notification-for-victims service, from blue dating site Fling.com. ®
