One Login password manager hacked

If you use One Login for your password storage, get ready for a bad weekend. The company announced their services have been hacked.

In an article on Ars Technica, the company said hackers compromised “customer data… including the ability to decypt encrypted data”.

If you have used One Login to save your passwords, you need to go through what you saved with them and change your password for all accounts they have.

On a side rant, using an online password manager is always a bad idea. Sure, it is convenient, but that also makes it a much bigger target for the bad guys. Thousands of unique bank accounts, account passwords and “real world” information like social security numbers and home security codes all in one place? I recommend using a local offline password manager instead.
