DreamHost Hacked; Change Your Passwords Now

Not even a whole week after Zappos was hacked, our favourite hosting service, DreamHost, has also had a breach.

They say there’s “no evidence that customer passwords were taken”, but they”re pushing out password changes to everyone just to be safe. In addition, you should change any of your other passwords just to be safe — that is, if they’re at all similar to your DreamHost password. Just as we did during the Zappos hack, we highly recommend you set up a password manager like LastPass, and use it to help you audit your passwords. Remember, the only secure password is the one you can’t remember. Hit the link to read more.
