Some dastardly villains have hacked some Minecraft users, potentially stealing some of their information. Whether you were a victim or not, maybe now is a good time to brush up on your internet security and change that password.
I really need to update some of my passwords.
This title is very misleading. The article is about phishing for data. Phishing is not exclusively a hack in itself. The words "hack, hacker, hacked, etc." are used very loosely these days. Typically a "hacker" has programming knowledge in which allows for him/her to reverse engineer code to work in their favor. For example, SQL injections in poorly written PHP code that can then be used to manipulate/take/remove/ database data. Databases are where passwords and credit card info are stored (As well as other data), if the company stores them. Edit: To my post in reply to Cobra, I have found a website that can check shortener links. Useful if you are skeptical of a link!)
What site is that? I've been looking for one, but don't know which sites are good for that.
It's Checkshorturl.com pretty simple to remember. :D
No my password is not amazing. It !$ zumt££n ELS3 (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
