This is what you're supposed to do after you've been hacked

If the Philly-loving hacker that assumed control of @BurgerKing and @Jeep taught us anything (besides that the world loves Meek Mill), it's that no one is out of reach on the Interwebz.

This is what you're supposed to do after you've been hacked

If the Philly-loving hacker that recently assumed control of @BurgerKing and @Jeep taught us anything (besides that the world loves Meek Mill), it's that no one is out of reach on the Interwebz. Luckily, the folks at Wired are well aware that you've divulged airplane hangars worth of private information (mother's maiden name, anyone?) on the web and have offered up some enlightening advice on how to respond to being hacked.

And as I discovered when I was hacked last year, my experience was distressingly commonplace. And yet while being hacked may be increasingly familiar, it isn’t getting any less stressful or confusing. It’s hard to know what to do, or where to begin, immediately afterward.

From resetting your passwords to speaking out about your experience, Wired's Mat Honan holds our hands as he walks us through the process of reclaiming your online security after a breach. Sadly, it's advice we should probably all be paying attention to. [Wired]
