    On Monday, a random posting to Pastebin offered 1,300 email addresses and passwords to anyone who happened to come across the file, and provided a sponsored link to what the post claims to be a file containing billions of PayPal accounts.

    The post on Pastebin records the email address and password for 1,300 people, and claims to be a list of PayPal accounts. There is an Ad Fly link to what's said to be a downloadable master list of 23,873,667,087 hacked accounts. Aside from loading an Ad, the link itself is dead, as the download domain doesn't exist anymore.
