VerticalScope hacked, forum users' data stolen - Canada Moto Guide

Hope you don't use the same password and username at multiple websites.

I'm off the hook on this one. I use 1Password's password generator so I only know about 3 or 4 of my passwords anymore.

Cheftyler... outstanding! Only way to fly anymore...

I've been on Lastpass for about a year and a half... most of my passwords are now random 20 character strings... couldn't remember them if I tried.

I just sat through a security talk in Atlanta last week, the number of breaches in the last couple of years is overwhelming... there are no secrets.

It is critical to never reuse a set of credentials, and use 2-factor authentication if it is available. 2-factor isn't perfect, but it does make it more difficult.

I think I'm going back to paper and pencil....lol

'08 Versys.. Givi rear rack, JCW trunk and E21's, Givi shield, Madstad bracket, Speedy peg and mirror brackets, lowering kit, SC Seat, R1 Shock.. other stuff. '09 KLX250 setup for singletrack. 2011 Xterra, '80 CJ-7

Oh no! Now my MyTractor account will be looted of all my sexy tractor pics!

Really, of all the things to hack, a rec forum site? What exactly is the point? Seems like a lot of work for nothing to me.

Databases of usernames, email addresses, and passwords, and many people use the same values across all their accounts.

Hacked in February / Announced in June

Either I didn't read it right or they are really slow in coming clean, a little disappointing.
