Twitter got hacked earlier this week, affecting 250,000 accounts. I have gotten no indication that mine was included but changed my password anyway. Fortunately, they say that the information was encrypted and salted.

I received an email from Twitter tonight that mine may have been compromised and that Twitter had reset my password.

If you reuse that password anywhere else, you might want to change those as well, just to be safe. Though if they really are salted, it's a minor risk.

It was a unique password generated by LastPass.

Love LastPass, but our company just killed my access to it from the office (and all other auto-synchronizing programs like DropBox and Evernote). Trying to find out if I can use a YubiKey in its place.

I'm getting to old to remember and there are to many sites requiring passwords.

KeePass + FreeFileSync + USB Drive. This is what I use for my primary password source, and then LastPass for secondary.

Thanks Mark. Something I'll certainly research.

They are hiring for a security position, someone that knows two factor authentication. As long as I can use my Yubikey, I'd be happy, like with Google Authenticator.
