Did LulzSec Leak Your Data?

   0


While we could all argue between the righteousness and asshatery of what LulzSec, an off-shooting branch of Anonymous, has been up to lately, I think if there is one lesson to take away from recent events is that we should all be very, very careful about how we secure our stuff online.

Now, I'm not saying go all Boris, a la Golden Eye, but what I am saying is that personal security is more often than not the first, last and only line of defense you have against having your information visible for the entirety of the Internet to see - in plaintext. For those of you who may have had your information leaked by LulzSec, obviously change all your password immediately. For those of you who haven't, same thing and avoid the whole "Password" or "12345" business. It's just not good cricket.

In the meantime, if you want to check - go here, do a ctrl+F and pop in your details. The good/bad news will become apparent pretty quickly.

About AndrewG009one of us since 1:33 PM on 07.28.2009

"I kind of miss the days when games were judged on their game-playing merit alone. I'm a little concerned about how far we (the game industry) are into the licensed four-page-ad marketing blitz era these days, which may be a natural evolution of the industry. But I'm always worried when we put more emphasis on glitz and production values than on the game. That's a trend that looks good for a while until you realize there's no game industry any more. If we don't have gameplay, we can't really compete with other forms of entertainment because we can't do graphics as good as the movie industry and we can't make sounds as well as the recording industry. All we can do that's special to us is be interactive. So we have to hang on to that and make sure we do a good job." - Sid Meier
