Thanks to all the data breaches and security incidents over the last few years, attackers are sitting on a gold mine of valuable credentials information which they can use to launch credential-stuffing attacks against major Web services and other applications.
Google has integrated its Password Checkup functionality into Chrome 79 to warn when people use compromised credentials.
Four years after an intrusion, Slack has discovered new details about the incident and moved to reseat many users' passwords.
No matter what the security zealots say, the password will never fully die. The latest version of Windows 10 is getting closer to the passwordless ideal.
Users who hate having to change their Windows passwords every 60 days can rejoice: Microsoft now agrees that there is no point to forced password changes and will be removing that recommendation from its security recommendations.
