Re: Chrome blocking Newsday

said by limegrass69:

So, if you logged into the News 12 or Newsday websites using your Optimum ID, has that been compromised?
I guess not...they claim in the article that customer information was not compromised.

If the site was so poorly secured who's to say what information and data was compromised and what was not.

They buried any coverage of this occuring in the back pages of their business section.

The New York Times and Wall Street Journal were hacked, nothing is secure on the internet anymore.

This is not big news. And any site with user information is going to handle that in a separate manner than the site content.
