A group from Nepal calling itself TeamSwaStika has posted 10,000 stolen Facebook accounts on Pastebin.

"The group appears to have obtained the stolen accounting data, through either phishing, or data mining malware-infected hosts for Facebook credentials," writes ZDNet's Dancho Danchev.

"Another alternative would be that they have purchased the cache containing the stolen credentials from a specific service reselling accounting data, as these services are quite popular within the cybercrime ecosystem nowadays," Danchev writes.
