45000 Facebook login passwords have been stolen . This was the work of a computer worm called Ramnit, which has been around since April 2010 and has been believed to largely stolen the data of facebook users from UK and France acoording to the information provided by a security firm called Seculert.

“We suspect that the attackers behind Ramnit are using the stolen credentials to login to victims’ Facebook accounts and to transmit malicious links to their friends, thereby magnifying the malware’s spread even further,” said in the security firm’s researchers blog.

“In addition, cybercriminals are taking advantage of the fact that users tend to use the same password in various web-based services to gain remote access to corporate networks,” it added.
