Didn't care much about FB/Google hack, but after seeing today's notice it seems Blind is not totally transparent about what they store. Compromised emails, chats and much more for a subset of users!

TC: yeah, fuck off

    They claim that emails were never stored, so in theory our identities are safe.

      And you trust their claim? Utter incompetency to keep the server exposed for almost a month.

      It literally says in the article that they found multiple places where emails were in the logs and databases.

      It also says there's no mapping. My co-workers all know I'm on blind, so do my friends, that part isn't a secret.

      From the notice Blind sent, it seems like they left a server exposed and someone got in. It wasn't that someone hacked in.

    It seems like people here think that Blind developers are these perfect entities that doesn't have stupid bugs, like the rest of the developers.
    Maybe FANG companies have higher standards for security, but behind those standards lies the same developers that forget to secure log messages :)

    Treat blind like everything you saying your boss is reading. This is the safest bet. I treat my post like boss is reading over my shoulder.
