It's a sad reality that's been coming to a head for years now. Thousands of websites are hacked each and every day.

What does that mean for your data and personal information? Simply put, it's not safe. Data breaches are constantly being reported, and it doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon.

Now more than ever, you're vulnerable to hackers' tricks and schemes. One major problem is, most folks don't know they've been hacked until it's too late.

Here are just a few sites that have been hacked, along with the number of accounts impacted:

  • MySpace - 359,420,698
  • Yahoo - Over 1,000,000,000
  • LinkedIn - 164,611,595
  • Adobe - 152,445,165
  • Dropbox - 68,648,009
  • tumblr - 65,469,298

If you have an account with any of these sites, you need to find out if you've been compromised.
