    Time to change your password again. A database containing nearly 5 million Gmail user accounts and passwords was leaked onBitcoin Security, a popular Russian website devoted to the cryptocurrency.

    The text file was published on Tuesday nightby user tvskit, according to CNews, the Russian news outlet that first broke the story. The leaker claimed that the majority of the accounts belong to users who speak English, Russian, or Spanish, and that approximately 60 percent are active. The passwords not only give access to Gmail, but a slew of other Google services such as Drive and the mobile payment system Google Wallet.
