13,000 Passwords To Sites Leaked in December 2014
Amazon, PlayStation Network, Walmart and a few others were compromised
The group called Anonymous have published approximately 13,000 passwords to the following sites:
- PlayStation Network
- Xbox Live
- Hulu Plus
While 13,000 is not considered a large data breach by comparison to others this year there is still a need to be concerned and changing your password is an easy way to reduce your risk.
If you have any accounts with these sites you should change your password. And if you have used the same password on any other site that should be changed as well. We recommend using a password management system such as https://lastpass.com/ to make managing and changing passwords easier.
