Facebook hacker claims to be based in New Zealand

A Russian hacker who says he is living in New Zealand attempted to vend the login details of millions of Facebook users - an unprecedented attack on the world's biggest social networking site “facebook”.

Detectives from the National Cyber Crime Centre (NC3) are investigating whether the hacker Kirllos is using New Zealand as a base to commit internet fraud.

Kirllos is offering the user names and passwords of around 1.5 million Facebook users for between $35 and $62.70 per 1000 accounts sold on an underground hacker forum and the New York Times reported that the login details of as many as 700,000 Facebook had already been sold.
