    Passwords / accounts harvested by Russians

    Passwords on many sites (1.6 billion accounts) have been compromised, not AP as far as we can tell.

    We recommend the following actions on a regular basis:
    • Change you passwords to something unique for each site where you have a login
    • Esp. for financial sites make sure you have a strong password, at least 8 characters in length
    • Change your AP password here

    Thanks for the heads up. It seems very likely there is some kind of vulnerability on at least one massively used software (i.e. a Content Manager) as the sites affected are more than 400k.


    Regards
