Yahoo Breach and Linden Lab Security

With the recent enormous data breach of Yahoo users information (over 500,000 users affected) and many other data breaches (Sony, DNC, Ashley-Madison), how secure is our data with Linden Labs? 

Our passwords to our SL accounts allow hackers access to actual cash. Linden Labs has our credit card information and personal information on file. How do we know Linden Labs won't be the next big data breach with not only the privacy of SL members, but the financial assets of SL users at stake? 

Does anyone at Linden Labs have an answer about what they are doing to ensure the protection of our private information?

 

EDIT: That is 500 Million users not 500,000! Thanks Pam.

from what was said many years ago after the 2006 incident here,   they moved the service to behind a private vpn type setup,  the database is not exposed to the internet in anyway.    LL also run's their own private fiber ring,  so they have quite a few things setup properly,  the industry tends ot ingore them though :/   industry could take a lesson from the lab.
