If you haven't heard of today's breach on LinkedIn you should change password now. It is reported that up to 6 million user account passwords have been stolen. More importantly you should change password in any other online service you have probably used this same password, like Facebook, Google, DropBox, Hotmail and others. Hackers are likely to try other online services once they get your password, so I strongly advice all of you to change passwords immediately but not just on LinkedIn. Everywhere else you used this password too. We all use one password for more than one online service, don't we?
It's time to change. And here are some tips on How to create strong password
LinkedIn breach has been confirmed by Russian hacker posting 6.46 million login details online, but also as a consequence 1.5 million eHarmony online dating accounts have been breached too.
And my own guess is we will see more of those breaches as published passwords are being used for other phishing scams.
