If you haven’t already heard, a Twitter employee’s email account was hacked yesterday and confidential corporate information became exposed.
I don’t know if users login details and passwords were compromised – perhaps someone could let me know if they’ve heard anything about that – but it does pose an interesting question…
Do you use the same password for every website that you have to log into?
With the rapid increase in social networking sites and other web properties that require registration the need to remember multiple names and passwords can quickly become overwhelming.
I have a few friends who ‘solved’ that problem by using just one name and password for every site they visit.
Whilst it may save them the hassle of remembering lots of different details it does pose a security risk.
If their details are compromised on one site a hacker could then potentially break into their accounts everywhere they go on the net!
With that in mind, I wonder do you re-use the same password everywhere you go?
If so, do you feel secure?
