You go in there and type in your username, type in your password, hit log in, and it says bad username password combination. You go, “Huh? That’s weird. I thought that was my LinkedIn password. Oh, maybe it’s my other password.” Right? So you type that in. You hit log in. Nope. And you go, “Wow, I haven’t logged into LinkedIn in a while. Did I use my super secure I’ve-never-told-anyone-not-even-my-spouse banking password? Let me try that.” Boom. You hit log in. Failed. At that point you’re done. Our attention spans are too small. You’re like,“LinkedIn is broken. Something’s wrong. I’m out.”
What you’ve done is you’ve just given a bot three username and passwords that they can use across hundreds of websites in real time. So on average most of you have, believe it or not, up to about a hundred log ins. Now the question is – how many of you know, with precision, how many you have? Because if you don’t know with precision, you don’t know if you’ve got breached.
When they try, they know your password already.
