The data contains email addresses, passwords and server information too

A huge spam list composed of 711 million records was uncovered last week in the Netherlands.

Troy Hunt, founder of Have I been pwned? (HIBP), was notified of the list through Benkow moʞuƎq, a malware hunter, and added it to his website so that users can check if their details are in the list.

In a blog post, Hunt explains how the 711 million records are the largest data set he has loaded into HIBP. He claims: “…that’s almost one address for every single man, woman, and child in all of Europe.”
