34 Russian Cybercrime Groups Stole Over 50 Million Passwords with Stealer Malware

I can't think of any better reason to have unique, distinct passwords for each resource... especially if any of those password hauls came from companies that a) haven't yet figured out they were compromised, or b) drag their feet on their public response to the breach.

Amen, ditto, agreed.

Also, a good reason to have MFA on those resources that are valuable to you and others.
