Tumblr password breach

And now Tumblr is saying that they’ve had a data breach potentially exposing the passwords of 65 million accounts. Like the LinkedIn and MySpace breaches, this appears to be a few years old, and Tumblr is forcing passwords resets on the accounts it thinks is affected. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to reset your Tumblr password.

LinkedIn account breach

A LinkedIn data breach has been in the news the last few days. Someone is trying to sell a set of 117 million LinkedIn accounts from a 2012 breach, a breach that now appears to be much larger than was originally reported.

If LinkedIn thinks that your account is affected, they’ll probably force you to reset your password. And even if they don’t, this might be a good time for you to do that anyway, especially if you think your password might be older than 2012.
