Three major social networks have quietly fallen victim to data breaches, but despite some high-profile success, patience and trust is now beginning to fade.

 Four weeks. Three hacks. Two rival sellers of almost one billion accounts -- with more to come.

How did we get here? For Silicon Valley, the outbreak of recent confirmed data breaches served up a brutal reminder: security really matters. The hacks took over like a fever, fueled by the reasonable expectation -- given the hackers' apparently high level of access -- that more breaches would emerge.
