318,000 Facebook accounts, 70,000 gmail, google plus and youtube accounts, 60,000 yahoo accounts, 22,000 twitter accounts,8,000 linkedIn accounts, 9,000 Odnoklassniki accounts (a Russian social network) and 8,000 ADP (fortune 500 accounts) were compromised in a cyber attack that captured the log-in credentials of users and sent the info to a server controlled by hackers.

Cybersecurity firm Trustwave tracked the server to the Netherlands and immediately notified these companies of the breach. "We don't have evidence they logged into these accounts, but they probably did," said John Miller, a security research manager at Trustwave.

These companies tell CNN Money they have notified and reset passwords for the compromised users.
