mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "When LastPass, the popular and respected online password vault, saw an anomaly in its network traffic, it jumped. When it couldn't ascertain why there was slightly more output than input, it issued an alert for users to change their master passwords. It also installed better security measures like PBKDF2 and SHA-256.
The notification happened in less than a day and its fast tracking the crypto roll outs.
So Sony (and Epsilon), what's your defence now?"
