Current News / Pandora tells some users to reset their passwords
« Last post by Bugbatter on June 29, 2016, 03:47:28 AM »

Some users of the Pandora Radio have been advised to change their passwords - not because the music streaming service has suffered a data breach, but because Pandora has reason to believe that their passwords may have been compromised.

How can users' passwords be compromised if Pandora hasn't suffered a hacking attack? Simple. The affected users have made the classic mistake of reusing the same password on different websites - and one of those other sites has had its passwords compromised.

Microsoft’s official Windows Twitter handle sent out a tweet letting everyone know that today is the 20th anniversary of the iconic “bliss” wallpaper seen in Windows XP. The photo was taken by National Geographic photographer Charles O’Rear while on his way to see his girlfriend back in 1996. Many believe the photo was altered in some way, perhaps photoshopped a little bit, but O’Rear claims the photo was never altered or enhanced in any way.

O’Rear was on the road in St. Helena, California (located in the Napa Valley) when he spotted the hill. “There it was! My God, the grass is perfect! It’s green! The sun is out; there’s some clouds,” O’Rear explained. He pulled over and took the shot using his camera and the rest was history.
