Change your LinkedIn, Tumbler,…

Welcome back to the real world, so you need to change your password right now for but you can check haveibeenpwned.com

  • LinkedIn. They had a massive hack of a 25% of all their passwords. Back in 2012, but they are now on sale now.
  • Tumbler. Same thing back in 2013 but they didn’t tell us until this month
  • Myspace. Another massive breach
  • Gawker.
  • Boxee.

Those were just the ones I read about recently. As always the advice is:

  • Use a password manager like 1Password
  • Use a different password for each site
  • Make the password long and add symbols
  • If you really trust 1Password or for really sensitive ones go full random
