1. 2 million Facebook, Gmail and Twitter passwords stolen in massive hack →

    Sony is also resetting (some?) passwords for their PlayStation Network.

  2. Adobe Patches Flash; Windows, Mac Users Under Attack →

    Today (Feb. 8th 2013).

    Adobe patched two critical security flaws in Flash Player, both of which were under active attack. If you don’t have automatic updates enabled, you need to download the latest version and install it immediately.

  3. Battle.net Accounts Stolen (again)

    With my apologies for stepping only briefly outside of the focus of this Tumblr, this seemed important enough to give everyone a ‘heads up’.  Blizzard’s RMT item shop in Dialbo III (and consequently my bank account) would be a concern for me right now, had I bought that game.

    This was (quietly) announced on August 10th.

  4. LinkedIn cracked, 6.5 million passwords obtained

    LinkedIn, the “professional” social networking site, has been cracked.  The passwords of 6.5 million accounts have been obtained and released to the public.

    Apparently, LinkedIn has been very slow in responding to the situation, and in reading their response it appears that they’re still trying to distance themselves from responsibility.

    Anyway, just a PSA.
