The silence is deafening. What are they doing to keep our data safe? I would never sign up, look at how much their CEOs don't care about their users. Why, I'm so mad about this, why I think we should have some action. Who is going to be with me to continually post the same thing about this over the next few months on this very forum!

That'll show 'em!

Having an IT background, I'll refrain from bringing up the 'under the surface' suspicions that this may all be perpetrated by internet security companies. Oops...

Still, when in college in the early days of the internet, taking courses on such, we were well aware back then that no matter what security measures evolved, the defeat of such would evolve right behind it.

And, as I like to point out, none of this is as insecure as handing your credit card along with your signature off to a total stranger who then disappears with both for a few minutes.

Poppycock, Steve! No one here would be that lax with with their own security. Only the big companies do silly things like that.

To that end, I just saw this.

This is totally different than the Adobe security failure. This was keylogging software installed on client PCs which recorded their login and password. There was no server-side IT failure or weakness on the corporate networks of Google, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter.

By contrast the Adobe security failure was a colossal server-side IT blunder. Details: http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2013/11/04/anatomy-of-a-password-disaster-a...

Yes, you are right, it's not the same thing at all.

Interesting article, thanks for the link.

JPMorgan Chase hacked

JPMorgan Chase was hacked… back in July and they are just now going public with it. They noticed the attack in Sept and have been working with law enforcement since then.
