CNN Money is reporting that hackers stole the usernames and passwords of 2 million users of Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, Yahoo and other accounts.

Malicious software on computers around the world captured the log-in credentials from these websites for the last month, according to researchers at cybersecurity firm, Trustwave. The information went to a server. Trustwave said their researchers linked the breach to a server in the Netherlands controlled by the hackers.

The company posted the results of what they found on their website.
