Security & Hacking: Mat Honan Targeted

VOD interview/discussion at

Mat Honan also talks about it on his Blog at

Take the time to look at this, and think about structuring your accounts & etc to protect yourself from this, Hackers will certainly take note of this.

Couple of Basic Points:

Backup critical data, you need at least 3 copies of important data, the "working" copy, plus two separate backups in different locations/companies.

Don't interlink all your accounts.  That leads to domino effect of a single vulnerability being exploited, perhaps something out of your control like happened to Honan, that gives Hacker access to one of your accounts, and that one account will let them in to all the others.
