NewsNow suffers security breach – passwords should be considered compromised

Graham Cluley reports:

Online news aggregation service NewsNow has admitted that it has suffered a security breach.

I could find no mention of the data breach on NewsNow’s website or Twitter account (the last news it shares on its Twitter account announces the 2017 engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle, so perhaps they don’t consider Twitter a good way to communicate with users).

But in an email entitled “Update on your account security” NewsNow acknowledges that an incident has occurred, and that “an encrypted version of your password may have been accessed”
