How to see if your accounts are between the affected ones in the great hackeos of Internet
The site “Have I Been Pwned” allows to review if an e-mail is between the data of the massive filtrations, including recent actions as those of LinkedIn and Tumblr.
SANTIAGO. - In the last hours one knew that the accounts of Twitter and Pinterest de Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, had been hackeadas. As him, other profiles of Twitter apparently were harmed during the day of Sunday, including those of Keith Richards and the musical group Tenacious D. The origin of all these hackeos is not clear, but at least in the case of Zuckerberg, the situation would be due to the massive hackeo of LinkedIn announced in May, that filtered data of 164 million accounts in “professional” the social network. To this situation other given filtrations are added to know the last week, as the 65 million accounts of Tumblr that Internet data published in 359 accounts of MySpace saw their million and. The question arises then from how seeing if your accounts have been filtered in these cases. LinkedIn contacted its affected users and in many cases, the own companies force their clients to change their passwords after an event of this type, but this not always happens. The best option to see if your data have been released in these actions is the site “Have I Been Pwned”, created by the Australian analyst of security Troy Hunt after the hackeo to the servers of Adobe, published in 2013 and from where the information removed from 152 million accounts. Hunt has been updating the site with different happened events since then, collecting data of 110 hackeos, including the most known as the recent cases LinkedIn, Tumblr and MySpace, in addition to others as the one of Ashley Madison in 2015, Plex, Snapchat, Sony, VTech and Gawker. In order to use the site, it is only necessary to enter the e-mail that is required to review (the one that is used in the registry of services) and soon the system will indicate if it is within the filtrations. The portal indicates, in addition, if the information is in “you graze publicly”, that is to say, available in Internet. In addition, it is indicated if the filtration included passwords and if these had some level of protection.
What to do if the data appear filtrates
If your mail appears between publications, the first recommendation is to change the password of the affected service and all the other where it is used. In many cases, as the one of LinkedIn and MySpace, the data were extracted years (2012 and 2008, respectively), but beyond if the affected key is in use or no, experts ago of security recommend to update the passwords of periodic form and never to use the same in multiple sites. Another important recommendation is to qualify the verification of two passages in the services where he is available. Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and many other sites have available this alternative of security, that makes hackers more difficult than manage to enter the accounts. This because, in addition to the password, a second code is required, that can be sent to a cell phone through text message or be generated in an independent application, as Google Authenticator or Authy. This characteristic of security can be qualified, usually, from the section of configuration of account of the corresponding service.
