It appears that the GREATEST THEFT OF USER CREDENTIALS IN HISTORY has been reported by Hold Security. This article explains just what has happened and why.
If you have a habit of using the same password for different websites/emails/bank accounts/etc…, you increase the risk of being compromised. If one of those sites is compromised, your other accounts where you use the same password will be vulnerable.
Lesson to learn here is: NEVER…….use the same login credentials on more than one website.
The article, also, explains how to make a STRONG password. Something we should ALL be doing. Especially in light of how easily (as of late) our information on the internet seems to be “hacked” by sources “unknown”.
