The mystery of the “hacked” Facebook accounts

After a day of investigation it seems that “Team SwaStika” may be attempting to take credit for compromising account details that they really had nothing to do with.
The two lists of hacked accounts (Part 1 and Part 2) have both been circulated online before the Pastebin posts were made by Team SwaStika. The list entitled Part 1 appears to have been doing the rounds on various underground forums for the better part of a year. The second list entitled Part 2 by Team SwaStika is much more recent. The first evidence I can find of the accounts listed in Part 2 is only 19 days old.
A list with content exactly matching this second Pastebin post by Team SwaStika was uploaded to a compromised website by the better known group of hackers Group Hp-Hack. Group Hp-Hack is a Saudi Arabian hacker group that has previously gained notoriety in August of this year for defacing the websites of Joomla Canada and (which remains defaced to this day).
The html list of alleged Facebook logins uploaded to a compromised web server was created in Microsoft Word and has a creation date of 1st October 2011 but was posted with the claim (in Arabic) that the list only represents 10% of the 7 million accounts that were breached by Group Hp-Hack.

I have informed the owners of the compromised server and advised them to remove the content and once again passed this information to Facebook’s security team
