I know you've been listening to me right? After LinkedIN was hacked you heeded my wisdom and changed your password right?
Well, guess what, it's another day, another password breach. This time over 400,000 accounts from the freelance writing consortium Yahoo! Voices have been leaked, and are floating around the internet in clear text. Yes, I said cleartext.
If you are a Yahoo! Voices user and want to find out if the email account linked to your Yahoo! Voices account was compromised click HERE.
While we're talking about the leaked passwords, take a look at this list that Securi.net reports contains the most commonly used passwords found in the leaked data. Is yours on the list?
[number of accounts] [password]
If your account was compromised, you'll want to heed the advice I gave you during the LinkedIN leak and change the password on any account that was created using this same email and password combination - just in case. In fact, if you're one of those people that use the same password for everything, I'd suggest changing that strategy today.
If you're looking for tips on secure passwords (and no, '123456' and 'password' do not count) then it's time to revisit my 'Time to Change Your Password' post
But seriously, go change your passwords already.
