Zomato Hacked! Database of 17 Million Users Stolen

As this article states, the biggest challenge in a breach like this is the fact that so many users reuse the same usernames and passwords across a large portion of their online accounts.  If you are a user of this service, you have already been forced to change your password.  Take this breach as a warning to not replicate the same credentials all over the internet.  Use a password manager.  Use unique passwords.
