This isn't a single breach but an amalgamation of databases from other breaches. It's the largest haul it compromised user credentials ever discovered but it's not the biggest breach.

ah sh*t i hate having to change

well i guess its a good thing in this case, ive been running off of "remember me" on this site for the past like, 5 months or so lol

no idea what my password is

its pretty spooky when data gets stolen, most of my accounts aren't really valuable in any way but some of them do hold lots of personal things

I'd be hesitant about changing passwords until we know who was breached, especially as it's likely they the attackers still maintain access in some places. All you may end up doing is giving them your new passwords too.

 

I'd enable two factor authentication for everything that supports it.
