Dropbox, one of the biggest online services, lost 68 million passwords to a hacking attack (mine included). Take this seriously.
You can read my previous post on password and why picking strong and unique passwords is important here.
I read a real jaw dropping post today from Bruce Schneier. He was asked by six US Congress representatives to come and brief them on what the NSA was doing… Bruce is a civilian… if the elected officials do not know what is going on then there is a incredible break down of oversight and accountability in the US government. But then if you been reading between the lines, it’s been that way for a long time.
And that it’s extremely freaky that Congress has such a difficult time getting information out of the NSA that they have to ask me.
