7MS #12: Why My Domains Have Gan to Gandi (audio)
In this episode I talk about an account takeover article that freaked me out, and why it changed a few things about how I handle my important online accounts.
- This episode is all about this article (https://medium.com/cyber-security/24eb09e026dd) in which a Twitter user is extorted into giving up his sought-after Twitter handle.
- Lessons learned for me: first, ensure your primary “reset” email is well-protected, such as a Gmail account with 2FA. Second, put long TTLs on your MX records. Third, consider a domain with a bit beefier of security controls, such as Gandi.
