Quite literally, everyday someone gets hacked. Whether that’s a telecommunications company having its customer data stolen, or another chain of businesses being ripped for all the credit cards it processes, today one hack just seems to melt into another. I mean, the day just isn’t complete without a fresh leak of the personal info of ten or so million users.
It’s gotten to the point where there are just so many hacks, that you may have become desensitized to the sheer amount of data that has been pilfered away from the servers of companies. One million user accounts here, 4 million hashed passwords there. The mundanity of everyday data breaches is taking its toll.
That’s why we’re launching this new format: Another Day, Another Hack. We’ll do short posts giving you what you need to know about the hack, so you can figure out whether your bank account, website logins or anything else might be at risk. Because, even if the hack might not be the most sophisticated, and as new data breaches fight for your attention, real people are still getting **** over somewhere, and should know about it.
