Dual Data Leaks of Blur, Town of Salem Impact Millions

A lot of users have been impacted by a data breach affecting two companies. One of which is a password manager. Password managers need to be more secure and better at holding data to avoid these issues. Maybe we need to take a step back and have a talk about people using applications such as KeePass over online storage of passwords.

Password-manager Blur and role-playing game Town of Salem both disclosed data breaches this week that impacted a combined 10 million.

 Popular role-playing game Town of Salem saw the email addresses and passwords of more than 7.6 million players hacked; while a separate database issue with password-manager Blur exposed personal data of approximately 2.4 million users. ...

... The data breach of Town of Salem –  a popular browser-based game owned by BlankMediaGames –  was first discovered on Dec. 28 when the compromised database was anonymously sent to DeHashed, a hacked database search engine.

According to DeHashed, 7,633,234 unique email addresses were exposed – the most-represented of the email providers being Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo.com.

@Zanshi at the moment, your topic doesn't meet the posting guidelines

Your thread must include some original input to tell the reader why it is relevant to them, and what your personal opinion on the topic is. This needs to be MORE than just a quick, single comment to meet the posting guidelines.

Something along the lines of "there have been lots of data breaches recently, and for a password manager to be breached is very concerning" would be fine.

I hope my edit will work.
