Could you post a link actually showing that? Also it's RockYou2021.

I'm reading this, I don't see anything in here that indicates its not real passwords https://cybernews.com/security/rockyou2021-alltime-largest-password-compilation-leaked/

What seems to be the largest password collection of all time has been leaked on a popular hacker forum. A forum user posted a massive 100GB TXT file that contains 8.4 billion entries of passwords, which have presumably been combined from previous data leaks and breaches.

According to the post author, all passwords included in the leak are 6-20 characters long, with non-ASCII characters and white spaces removed. The same user also claims that the compilation contains 82 billion passwords. However, after running our own tests, the actual number turned out to be nearly ten times lower – at 8,459,060,239 unique entries.

The compilation itself has been dubbed ‘RockYou2021’ by the forum user, presumably in reference to the infamous RockYou data breach that occurred in 2009 and rockyou2021.txt filename containing all passwords, when threat actors hacked their way into the social app website’s servers and got their hands on more than 32 million user passwords stored in plain text.

With a collection that exceeds its 12-year-old namesake by more than 262 times, this leak is comparable to the Compilation of Many Breaches (COMB), the largest data breach compilation ever. Its 3.2 billion leaked passwords, along with passwords from multiple other leaked databases, are included in the RockYou2021 compilation that has been amassed by the person behind this collection over several years.

Considering the fact that only about 4.7 billion people are online, numbers-wise the RockYou2021 compilation potentially includes the passwords of the entire global online population almost two times over. For that reason, users are recommended to immediately check if their passwords were included in the leak. ....

Nothing in here that indicates a wikileaks dump faggot. If you're so smart would you mind sending something useful rather than being a useless twat.

Shortly before Apple CEO Tim Cook took the virtual stage at the iPhone maker’s Apple Park headquarters campus for WWDC 2021 on Monday — at which the company unveiled a ton of new software updates, https://bgr.com/tech/ios-15-reveal-features-release-date-wwdc-2021-5930056/ including some major new privacy enhancements https://bgr.com/tech/wwdc-2021-announcements-apple-unveils-privacy-features-updates-5930071/ — an email landed in my inbox underscoring how critical those privacy features are going to be once they roll out with iOS 15. https://bgr.com/tech/ios-15-beta-download-install-update-iphone-ipad-5929974/ Basically, there’s been another huge data leak, this time exposing several billion passwords in what just might be the biggest dump of passwords online ever.

This news comes via the team at CyberNews, https://cybernews.com/security/rockyou2021-alltime-largest-password-compilation-leaked/ which reports that a 100GB text file containing a staggering 8.4 billion password entries was just leaked on a popular hacker forum. This data set presumably combines passwords stolen via previous data breaches and leaks, and it’s been dubbed the “RockYou2021” password leak on that hacker forum. That name was apparently chosen, per CyberNews, as a nod to the RockYou data breach from back in 2009, https://techcrunch.com/2009/12/14/rockyou-hack-security-myspace-facebook-passwords/ “when threat actors hacked their way into the social app website’s servers and got their hands on more than 32 million user passwords stored in plain text.”
