Security Incident (via WordPress.com) April 13, 2011Posted by nrhatch in Blogging.
Just wanted to make sure all of you who blog on WordPress saw this . . .
Matt’s advice from the article:
Based on what we’ve found, we don’t have any specific suggestions for our users beyond reiterating these security fundamentals:
Use a strong password, meaning something random with numbers and punctuation.
Use different passwords for different sites.
If you have used the same password on different sites, switch it to something more secure.
(Tools like 1Password, LastPass, and KeePass make it easy to keep track of different unique logins.)
I did change my WP password and also changed similar passwords used on other sites. You might want to do the same.
