Livingsocial Under Hack Attack

(WGGB) — A major consumer alert is out this morning for 50 million customers who use Livingsocial to shop online. The discount website is telling its users to change their passwords, and are apologizing after their site was hacked into. With so many passwords these days, people often try to keep them simple so that they can be remembered. ABC’s Linzie Janis explains exactly why that makes a hackers job easy.
