BBB Says Time To Change Your Passwords To Protect Yourself

If you haven’t yet changed your password on your computer accounts the Better Business Bureau of Eastern Washington says do it today. The BBB’s Chelsea McGuire says the change is necessary after an alleged massive international data breach in the past week.
According to the Hold Security, its Deep Web Monitoring program discovered what could be the widest-ranging global security breach in history, affecting an estimated 420,000 websites, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small internet sites. The New York Times reports that a second computer crime expert who reviewed the data said some large companies were aware their records were among the stolen information.
The company did not list the names of the hacked websites, however, Hold Security reports the hackers captured a staggering 1.2 billion usernames and passwords, and more than 500 million email addresses.
According to its website, Hold Security says “As long as your data is somewhere on the World Wide Web, you may be affected by this breach.”
McGuire says change your passwords today and make sure they’re different each time you need a password on an account.
