650 million accounts stolen!

By this time you should not be suprised to see this type of news. Have you? if that is the case, just go back and see the other blogs where you can easly find other braches.

This time 620 million (a lot!) accounts were stolen from 16 hacked websites.  Please see carefully the list of the websites below to see if you have any account created there. If you do, just go to the website an initiate an immediate password reset. However, if you have re-used the password in any other website, even if the website is not in the list, change that password as well.

Remember, ALWAYS use a different password for every website, then if a website is compromised, only that account will be vulnerable.

The list of websites are:

  • Dubsmash (162 million)
  • MyFitnessPal (151 million)
  • MyHeritage (92 million)
  • ShareThis (41 million)
  •  HauteLook (28 million)
  • Animoto (25 million)
  • EyeEm (22 million)
  • 8fit (20 million)
  • Whitepages (18 million)
  • Fotolog (16 million)
  • 500px (15 million)
  • Armor Games (11 million)
  • BookMate (8 million)
  • CoffeeMeetsBagel (6 million)
  •  Artsy (1 million)
  •  DataCamp (700,000)
Some of the data which have been leaked are names, email addresses, and hashed passwords. 
 
Again, if you have any account on any of the websites above just jump in and change the password. Do not wait to get a notification, which may be a phishing email, to get this done.
