Rather than look back at 2013, next week the Privacy & Security blog will count down The 12 Days of Privacy, looking ahead to what we might expect in 2014. The editor's muse for this series came from our friend and partner, Len Weiser-Varon, who riffed on yesterday's post regarding the latest password hack:
- 318,000 Facebook accounts
- 70,000 Gmail, Google+ and YouTube accounts
- 60,000 Yahoo accounts
- 22,000 Twitter accounts
- 8,000 ADP accounts (ADP says it counted 2,400)
- 8,000 LinkedIn accounts
- Three French hens
- Two turtle doves
- And a password in a pear tree.
In Len's words: This year, a brand new password in an unhacked stocking is a holiday must.
Don't miss our series starting on Monday.
