Social Tidbits: Recent News in Social Media

Tidbit #1: LinkedIn & EHarmony HACKED.

 A Russian hacker has breached LinkedIn’s security system, stealing 6.5 million users’ passwords. The director of LinkedIn, Vicente Silveria claims that they “have been working non-stop to investigate it”.

To check if your password was one that the hacker has gotten hold of, go here: LastPass

The hackers also got a hold of a small portion (1.5 million) of eHarmony’s passwords as well. eHarmony has taken action by quickly resetting all the affected members’ passwords and communicating with its users through email.

Tip: If you are a user of LinkedIn and/or eHarmony, and your passwords for either of those are the same ones you use for other social network or email accounts, I suggest you change all your passwords ASAP.
