123RF – 8,661,578 Breached Accounts
In March 2020, the stock photo site 123RF suffered a data breach which impacted over 8 million subscribers and was subsequently sold online. The breach included email, IP and physical addresses, names, phone numbers and passwords stored as MD5 hashes. The data was provided to Incognito by HIBP via dehashed.com.
Please take the following actions if you have ever used 123RF:
- Change all of your passwords and make sure your new password is at least 10 characters long and contains an upper case, lower case, number and a symbol. You can even use a modified phrase or a line from a song if that helps you remember.
- Make sure you do not use the same password twice as this leaves you vulnerable to a process called credential stuffing.
- Find a good password manager tool to help you remember all of your passwords. Some of our users say that 1Password is a good tool.
- Check out Incognito’s Email Hack Check tool. All you have to do is enter your email address and we will tell you instantly if it has been involved in one of the many data breaches that happen every day.
- You should also send an email to them and let them know that you are aware of the breach and ask them to provide you with Identity protection and credit monitoring services.
Please let me know if you need any help in relation to this or with anything else.
All the best,
Incognito Privacy Care
