Regarding an Internet Security Compromise that you need to know about

Mr. Husband wrote myself and others today about
a security breach that is impacting a lot of websites that we use
everyday, from Google products such as gmail, yahoo, facebook, instagram and many others.
Here's his advice that he agreed that I can pass on to you:

You'll probably want to change your passwords soonish.  However, I've read elsewhere that waiting a few days (and keeping down your login activity) would be better lest too much churn make the security problem worse.

And yes, you want two-factor authentication wherever you can get it (e.g., google, yahoo, linkedin, ...)

Updated to add this link Mr. Husband just sent me:
and a link on how to do it.


If any of this does not make sense, just let me know in the comments.
Thus ends our Public Internet Security Announcement.
You're welcome. :)
