On Today’s podcast, we'll discuss the latest monster data breach as detailed on Wired.com and discuss various ways to safeguard your identity, your email accounts, and passwords.

The data set was first reported by security researcher Troy Hunt, who maintains Have I Been Pwned, a way to search whether your own email or password has been compromised by a breach at any point. (Trick question: It has.) The so-called Collection #1 is the largest breach in Hunt's menagerie, and it’s not particularly close. Download the Podcast for more information!
