Emails Hacked

News of a huge data breach where 711 million accounts have been hacked.

You can check if your account has been compromised by putting your email into this web site: https://haveibeenpwned.com

LBC computer guy says the site is "safe" for the purpose of doing this search ı.e. it is not from frying pan into the fire.


Full story: E-MAIL WARNING - If you?re on this list of 711 million accounts, change your password NOW | Tech | Life & Style | Express.co.uk

I checked mine and my Adobe and a MySpace hack show up. Adobe they are welcome to anything it gives them, and as far as I know I have never had a MySpace account.

Advice from said expert, is to use a password generator; I use LastPass, while good enough, has had its own problems in the past. But it does mean that each site has a different password, so any breach such as this has very limited impact.

Re: Emails Hacked

Had mine hacked some months back, pretty sure it was via my Talk Talk account. I lost a lot of personal data, fretted for a few days then gave up & opened a new account. I used to do online banking, thats come to an end since being hacked.
