Well, those idiots over at linked-in have let 6 million passwords loose on the internet. And what’s their advice? To simply change your password. What the hell are they on about? Given that people use passwords across multiple sites and maybe even their banks, this is poor advice. What they really mean is change your password everywhere. That’s if you can remember everywhere you’ve used the password.
Of course, stupid us should be using a different password for every site, as if we don’t have enough to remember, particularly when they enforce silly rules about the passwords.
If any of my data gets leaked or breached, I shall be suing them for any ensuing loses.
If could be a matter of deleting the account instead of changing the password, this will help with any future breaches to their security and I won’t have to read the inane ramblings about changing your password.
