Reminder: Don't use the same password on multiple accounts

As the subject states, this is a gentle reminder that we should try and use various passwords across various accounts online. Especially if you sign up with a work email address and use the same password as you use in work.

Web attic Dropbox has admitted spammers got hold of its users' email addresses after an employee reused their work password on a website that was subsequently hacked.

*snip*

Most of the blame was levelled at an unnamed employee who reused his or her Dropbox password for an account on a third-party website that was compromised.
