More Sony/CNN Fallout…

The Wrap’s Jordan Chariton writes about a Turner memo telling its employees to change their passwords…

In response to the Sony hacking cyberattack, Turner Broadcasting is making its employees to change their computer passwords for precautionary purposes, TheWrap has exclusively learned.

(snip)

An insider familiar with the situation told TheWrap managers have expressed the urgency of employees changing their passwords, speaking with employees across Turner Wednesday.

Not quite sure why Turner is concerned about passwords after the Sony hack. There should be no direct fallout to Turner’s employees because Sony got hacked. Or, to put it another way, there should be no way that the Sony hackers should have any more insight into Turner employees’ passwords because Sony got hacked. This seems more like a knee jerk reaction bordering on paranoia.

    ^^No surprise to me. I’ll bet Turner far from the only US company telling employees to change their passwords and much more. If North Korea can hack a big corporation this easily, imagine what China and Russia can do if they are upset by some US companies actions.

    Regular password changes should be SOP. You’d be surprised how may times I’ve seen “password” or “qwerty” as passwords.
