Your Twitter Account May Have Been Hacked! Check Here
The official Twitter account of the NFL was recently hacked by a prankster who tweeted a bogus report of Commissioner Roger Goodell's death. It would seem a big business like the NFL would have pretty sharp IT people. If they got hacked, imagine how easily the average user could be compromised. The Huffington Post reports, nearly 33 million Twitter accounts have been breached, and the passwords are being traded on the Dark Net. Leaked source.com has shared a link you can follow to see if you've been compromised. Conventional wisdom dictates internet users have a password of at least 8 characters. An experienced, well equipped hacker can crack an 8 character password in about 40 seconds. It's now recommended you use at least 11 characters in your passwords.
