In September, Yahoo! announced a massive hack to its security system. An estimated 500 million users might have had their private information stolen. The company announced that hacked information could include not only names and email addresses, but also hashed passwords and answers to security questions. Yahoo! users are urged to change their passwords and check accounts linked to their Yahoo! email. This begs the question: How can we better protect ourselves online following this cyber attack? A few suggestions include having different passwords for every website and using passwords that consist of nonsensical words or phrases.
