  1. FYI Multiple Social Media sites breached and acct/password stolen!

    318,000 Facebook accounts
    70,000 Gmail, Google+ and YouTube accounts
    60,000 Yahoo accounts
    22,000 Twitter accounts
    9,000 Odnoklassniki accounts (a Russian social network)
    8,000 ADP accounts (ADP says it counted 2,400)
    8,000 LinkedIn accounts

    I would highly recommend a password change if you have account with any of the above.

    Gotta let my Russian bride know about this....

    In all super seriousness here, it's a good idea to change your password to something other than ITrustFaceBook or SentrosiIsAGodAmongMen

    Though that last one is pretty strong. No one would guess that.
  3. Its true! People have a hard time guessing strong passwords that are so far from the truth :p
  4. This is why I use a password manager like KeePass. It allows me to randomize passwords for websites and stores them securely on my computer, so I don't have to worry about some website's shoddy security.
