One of the jobs I take most seriously is to always keep you informed and updated to the latest hacks and scams. We live in times now where it seems like every other day this site or that database has been breached. It can get a little tiring to hear, I get that.
On May 19, 2016, I warned you that some 117 million people's accounts were at risk in a LinkedIn data beach. Like other breaches, I suggested that you change your password, especially if you use the same password at other sites. Click here if you would like to read more about the LinkedIn data breach.
The most common password found at LinkedIn was "123456". Unbelievably, more than 64 percent of the stolen passwords were simply "123456". The next most common password in the breach? Number two was "linkedin" followed by "password" at number three. Argh.
Word out now is that Mark Zuckerberg's account information was part of that breach. And over the last 24 hours, his Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest accounts were hacked. One can only surmise that he probably used the same password at the other sites.
So don't be like Mark. Click here on how to create the perfect un-hackable password.
