Russian Gang Amasses Over a Billion Internet Passwords

From the article:

A Russian crime ring has amassed the largest known collection of stolen Internet credentials, including 1.2 billion user name and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses, security researchers say.

It’s too bad that there isn’t a program available that once it identifies a virus trying to access your email or password….that it sends it’s own virus back and shuts it down the site it’s coming from. Probably not doable.
