    Default Massive keylogging hack makes off with over two million internet passwords

    Massive keylogging hack makes off with over two million internet passwords | National Monitor

    A massive hack has sent the internet security world into a frenzy this week, with as many as 2 million passwords likely falling into the wrong hands.
    According to CNN, hackers used a covert key logging software in order to steal passwords to tens of thousands of different websites.

    The software behaved like a malicious computer virus, installing itself on user computers worldwide and going to work in capturing usernames, passwords, and other login credentials of users.

    I do not think changing the password can help with anything unless, they found the cure for keylogger and removed it from the red.

    Always look beyond the limits...
