Change your Twitter password
If you have a Twitter account, whether it’s work or personal, you should log in and change the password immediately.
And as you’re doing that, think about whether you’ve used that password anywhere else.
Here’s why: Twitter yesterday announced that they have accidentally been storing passwords in ‘plain text’ – so not encrypted.
This is a fairly shocking announcement, although it does appear that there haven’t actually been any resulting data breaches.
It also shows the importance of using different passwords for different accounts. If you don’t, and had the breached data been made public, anyone might now have the password to your email, to your Dropbox or Office365 account and more.
You might reasonably expect a password for Twitter to be encrypted and secure, but this issue shows you can never truly be sure.
Any questions, get in touch.

The Anslow Partnership
Druces was experiencing recurring performance issues and service interruptions with its [hosted] systems. We asked EJC to conduct a detailed audit to allow us to identify where the issues were occurring and who we needed to work with to resolve them. Their approach was expert, professional and thorough. The insight it gave Druces allowed us to plan and act with confidence. I would recommend EJC to law firms looking to improve their technology service, delivery and benefits.
The quality of IT is vital to Fisher Meredith’s success and the Infrastructure Assessment by EJC has given the firm a clear roadmap and budget to deliver a secure platform that will support our continued growth…. Since we began working with EJC, they have delivered real improvements to the reliability and performance of our systems. Critically, they work successfully with our internal team, providing expertise and resource that extends and complements our own capabilities.
EJC work with a number of our clients and in my dealings with them I have always found them to be knowledgeable and to offer straightforward advice. I would recommend EJC to anyone that is looking for a professional organisation to help them get the most out of their IT.
