Credit Karma Account Breach Warnings.

Credit Karma Account Breach Warnings.

Postby CurbsidePharmacist » Thu May 17, 2018 5:58 am

I got an E-mail from Credit Karma a few days ago about 14 accounts I have that were compromised most notable ones.
MySpace
PSX Scene

And a bunch of random places like game sites.

Just curious if anyone else has used this service or have gotten notices?

None of them them had my actual passwords as I use 3 levels of user/pass and 2 part verification's.


[Edit]
2 accounts were withheld due to being sensitive? SO I'm not quite sure what those 2 would be.

I am not sure its a good email from them, usually the login is generated when I go to view the site but it was not even attempting to. I didn't log in to see if it was real from that link. I went to the site normally but was not able to see where they were pulling that information up to show me.

Oh they were real lol

I had to verify my E-mail then refreshed the page and they spit out a list of compromised passwords and then a list of all the places my E-mail has been stolen from by hackers then sold on the darkweb and the dates they were found.

They showed me 3 strings and all 3 were actual crap passwords from places i logged into once or twice.
I'd imagine it was done in hopes to catch people using 1 password across everything.


I use 3 or more levels of passwords.

Level 1 - Stuff I never plan to actually ever use again nor really trust.
Level 2 - Places that I don't frequent but may return to ie: software/updates/gameing sites
Level 3 - E-mails each with their own passwords then a super password for banking and medical stuffs.
Then of course my mobile device for text verification.

As far back as I can remember I've never really been hit for anything online to any degree that severely compromised my accounts or machines that I'm aware of, maybe a few batch scripted maleware apps or a bad app version with known exploits. I do recall a bitcoin client and a torrent client that were installed on separate occasions by using pirated software lol.

They are real and are follow-ups to several known recent breaches including Yahoo and Equifax. Because emails and possibly passwords were stolen, it is likely that those particular sites are ones that you used the same email address for it and one of the two compromised sites. I had almost 50 as I have a main email address that I use. I have requested an email address change with my ISP and because of a breach they are providing it with an overlap period so I can reset all of these accounts to the new email address and new passwords just to be safe.

Thought they just monitored credit scores, but according to some posts here, they do more than that. Gee, another online company that wants to get into all your business.

When everything is connected to one spot, it is easy to break it....

The hackers are ALWAYS one step ahead of the people trying to patch it.

That's why I wouldn't do my banking online.

Edited,
Equifax and this company are pure examples of how Online Banking can go very wrong in the matter of seconds.

One of the reasons I will probably NEVER use any credit cards. It's either cash or debit, if I want something online I just add a few hundred to cover the cost and keep maybe $50 in my checking account. If it's a place I've bevver heard of, gift card then.

All of my passwords are at least 20 characters long, I'd make them longer but with the 8-20 size it can't be done on those sites. On this site my password is 143 characters long just because I wanted to see if it would work :) I'd be driven insane if I had to store all my passwords in my head. And I also usd Authy for 2FA just wish PayPal would support it instead of over SMS.

I found the info without having to click on their link in that email. I seen some that were old as dirt and about two sites I had the account deactivated on. I made sure to change the pass and then deactivate everything afterwards along with eliminate any extra info that had been on those accounts too. Some were just old forums that I never used since I came across better sites.
