A Naked Security article reminds users of the importance of using multiple passwords across various websites after a breach at Epson Korea affecting 350,000. The company says hackers accessed its website last week and stole customers' personal data, including passwords, phone numbers, names and e-mail addresses. Customers have been advised to change their passwords as soon as possible. "Although you may not care very much if someone can log into your account at Epson, you certainly will care if they can also use the same password to access your other online accounts," the author writes.
