Formspring joins LinkedIn and others as the latest web property to lose member passwords to hackers. But it turns out Formspring was using a stronger cryptographic function than the business social networking giant.
Another password compromise has befallen a major company. This time Yahoo confirmed Thursday that its Contributor Network was raided of the usernames and passcodes of 400,000 members.
Twitter, with more than 500 million registered users globally, may soon be adding additional login protections. The company disclosed Friday that 250,000 people may have had their account data compromised.
The company advised its 50 million users on Saturday that it "detected and blocked suspicious activity on the Evernote network that appears to have been a coordinated attempt to access secure areas" of its service.
Yahoo presumably took no measures to ensure sensitive stuff like customer account credentials were kept safe and sound.
Considering the endless march of breaches, it may be time to scrap the belief that adequate passwords -- or even passphrases -- can prevent hackers from breaking into corporate environments. Instead, security pros should focus their efforts on gaining visibility into their networks.
On Friday, the popular coupon site announced that hackers breached its servers.
