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.
There’s a story going around that someone is trying to sell a collection of SEVERAL HUNDRED MILLION MySpace passwords (and that it’s the same person who is selling 100+ million LinkedIn passwords). As with the LinkedIn case, this may be a data breach from months or even years ago.
Still, if you have a MySpace account, or if you’ve re-used a MySpace password elsewhere, this might be a good time to change your password.
