The LinkedIn, eHarmony, and Last.fm hacks left some people wondering what hackers could possibly want with the data they have saved on those sites. There are a few good reasons, which have nothing to do with your job search, dating life, or musical taste.
Despite being concerned about the security of their personal data:
- Most people use the same password for for more than one site.
- Most people don’t change their passwords frequently.
- A good portion of people store their credit card information or other personal data on some websites for convenience.
All of which presents a virtual crime of opportunity to hackers, which is why hackers love hitting big consumer websites. BestBuy.com is the latest hacking victim; they sent out an email to some of their users saying their accounts had been compromised last Friday.
That LinkedIn password you changed only after it was lifted by hackers is likely to be the same password you used on other sites — possibly sites that have your credit card information stored — like Best Buy.
Changing all of your passwords is a frustrating process, especially since there’s little chance you’ll remember your passwords — at least without Dashlane — and you’re a hacker’s easy target.
