(Attention) Password leak issue of Twitter account


According to the news, On May 7, 2012, the passwords of the twitter account above 55,000 were leaked. About this case, it seems that we don’t need to worry because general users are not influenced.

However, we should consider about our password management because if the same password is used for locking the private information, such as an e-mail, an online shopping, or an online bank, its damage will be ruinous. 

  • I think that an unique password should be used for locking the private information.
