The social networking site Little Monsters has not been careful with its private information either, with the data of its 1 million users falling into the wrong hands. Hackers obtained user IDs, password hashes, email addresses, and birth dates from the service. These are users who followed Lady Gaga on the site. An immediate password change is recommended, especially if it is not the only one used on Little Monster.
In April last year, the forum of encryption solutions provider Etherum was hacked, and more than 16,000 user IDs, passwords, email addresses, and other data were compromised. The company is undoubtedly embarrassed by the leak, but at least it can be said that the data was adequately protected; for example, passwords only had the hash ID on the system.
