Enough is enough. Scrap it and start over. We need a newer, safer, more secure internet.
I highly recommend reading over Hold Security’s announcement, as it goes into a lot more detail about the numbers and paints a more realistic picture of this disaster. For instance, 4.5 billion records sounds like a lot, but there’s a LOT of duplication in it. They’re saying it looks like it’s closer to half a billion individuals affected, and even then, many of those records may be hopelessly out of date – stolen passwords that are years or decades old, or temporary, or defunct.
And while we’re at it, don’t let the Russians and Chinese in.
