LastPass breach update: the attacker got (encrypted) vaults.

If you have users with weak vault passwords, now’s the time to change any creds those users had access to, and of course enable 2FA everywhere it wasn’t already. #infosec #security

You’d think since they’re called Zoom calls they’d go a lot faster.

Week 1: We will finally bring free speech to the Internet

Week 8: Linktree is illegal

Coming up on the show from 3-6p eastern today… Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren and Congressman Joaquin Castro plus suspended twitter journalists @donieosullivan and @w7voa as well as @mollyjongfast SE Cupp, Jefferson Morley, Mike Isaac, Bill Weir, Chloe Melas, and Brad Hendrickson - American helping civilians in Ukraine.

Plus the “local” feed for each instance becomes a feed of all the posts from that institution mixed together — providing extra discovery.
