Today I was notified by LifeLock about a game I play on occasion (Town of Salem). Below is the notification I got. unknown.png

 I was told by a member in one of the discord gaming groups that I am a part of, this only affected user ID, passwords and that a notifcation was sent to the affected individuals a week ago. I personally, am unsure exactly what has been/will be affected. The best thing we can do is take extra steps in prevention.

I would highly recommend that everyone signs up to receive notifications from Have I Been Pwned. It is a free service that informs you if you've been impacted by a data breach. I can personally vouch for it as I've been signed up for quite a while now. Generally speaking, passwords obtained from data breaches are hashed and the attacker doesn't have the actual password itself. However, this doesn't mean there's nothing to worry about and changing your passwords when such exposures occur is always considered good measure. 

Kinmunity Security Tips

  • Use a strong password that you don't use anywhere else. A strong password is eight characters or more and contains mixed case letters, numbers, and symbols and isn't a common choice (such as Abc123456!)


    Consider using a Password Manager to store your passwords, so that you can use a unique password for each site. I recommend Dashlane!
  • Your password should NOT be: A person's name or a date which is significant to you, or anything that a friend or acquaintance of yours can easily guess.
  • Kinmunity will not allow you to use a password that our scoring system rates below "Fair".

[*]Setup Two-Factor Authentication. This will require you to present both something you know (your password) and something you have (your mobile phone) in order to login to Kinmunity. We recommend that you use the Authy app.

[*]Never share your account or password with anyone. Kinmunity staff will NEVER ask for your password. Your password will only be requested by this site "https://www.kinmunity.com" over a secure connection.
