T-Mobile Customer? Change Your Password!

T-Mobile Logo

T-Mobile announced on Thursday evening that they were the target of a hack that they promptly shut down on August 20th. In the press release, T-Mobile stated that financial information and social security numbers were not stolen, however exposed data “may have included one or more of the following: name, billing zip code, phone number, email address, account number and account type (prepaid or postpaid).”

While T-Mobile claims that passwords weren’t compromised (only the encrypted hashes), according to this article, the passwords may have been weakly encrypted and potentially discovered with a brute force attack.

Lessons of the past tell us that, even if you weren’t one of the 20 million customers supposedly involved, you should assume that you are. Go to T-Mobile’s website and change your password immediately – and remember, don’t use the same password anywhere else! I highly recommend using a password manager, such as LastPass, to generate and save secure passwords.

When I tried to login to my T-Mobile account, it forced me to update my password before proceeding so it should do that with you as well. Stay safe!

Hello!

IMG_20180810_121101

Holy crap! It’s been over 4 years since I posted to this blog. Wow! Anyway, over the next week or so I’ll be deleting old content that no longer works, updating the look & feel, upgrading features (I’ll have a domain!), and writing new posts. Expect regular content soon!

But what kind of regular content???

I don’t have a niche, yet, so it’ll be all over the place. I’ll be sharing my Instagram posts (that alone will be 1-2 posts per day) and YouTube uploads, in addition to some actual writing like product reviews, thoughts on current events, updates on my personal life, and maybe even some original fiction…? 🤔 I don’t think I’ve written any fiction since 2006, and even what little that I put online then is lost to the ether.

I’m excited!

EDIT: I just realized that I should provide some links to my social media pages where I’m most active, especially since this site doesn’t have much content, yet. Here ya go!

Links to the rest of my social media pages can be found on the About link at the top of this page (this may change as I update the site but, as of this writing, that’s where they are).
