    1. First story of the week is another one to do with a massive password dump going up for sale. This time it’s 65 million Tumbler passwords. These passwords look to be from a breach that happened in 2013. It really hasn’t been a good few months for password security.

    1. Last week a number of users were claiming that their TeamViewer credentials were being misused, potentially pointing to a breach of the remote support software servers but the company is denying these claiming password reuse, and careless user actions are to blame instead. I am guessing if there was an actual compromise, we will know soon enough.
