Reuters news article: Exclusive: Big data breaches found at major email services - expert

FYI, Google and Yahoo! are part of this breech. I have at least one friend affected by this. It was the kick in the pants I needed to set up two factor authentication on my Yahoo and Tumblr[1] accounts. Supposedly they’ll let affected accounts know, but who knows how long that will take.

Plus changing the passwords. Just in case. Even though I've had each account with it's own unique password for years now.

[1] As it's owned by Yahoo!, so who knows if it's mixed up in this or not.

Oh goldarnit, not again...

Ach, blarg! Everything I log into has it's own password at this point, but I always worry with these things that I'm going to get snagged somehow. I hate handing out my cellphone number for two factor, but it looks like that's pretty much a required step these days. :p

Funny part is I can't remember if I have an old Yahoo account anymore... I've been hopping around the interwebs for too long to tell where I've been. *facepalm*
