Many of you may have heard the latest yesterday, 5 million google accounts were compromised. You can check to see if your account was in the list of leaked accounts by visiting this site and entering your google email.
If you account was compromised, change your password immediately. And this latest compromise is by no means the first, we have seem millions and millions of accounts compromised over the last few years. It is a good practice to change your password on a regular basis (even on TuD). If you accounts are compromised you could have your identity stolen, have charges made against your account and in the worst case have things like your google account be used as a leverage to obtain access to things like on-line banking accounts.
Keep yourself safe by using good security software and changing your passwords to strong passwords on a regular basis.
