Greetings:

I know that from time to time some people have asked about the security of account aggregators (e.g., Mint, Quicken, et cetera) and I came across this interesting article re: some recent problems: https://krebsonsecurity.com/2019/11/ncr ... ver-storm/.

Welcome to Bogleheads!

If find it extremely odd that you joined to post this.

From the article there is no suggestion that issue relates to the aggregator security issues.

From the article:
hacked accounts are tied to customers re-using their online banking passwords at other sites that got hacked
Yeah, don't do that (reuse passwords).
