PostSubject: Compromise of emails   Mon Jan 16, 2012 7:13 pm

Zappos has been compromised by some hackers and I am one of the 24 million customers who might of been affected. I have changed my password and use a different email now, but it sucks to have to change my information.

I don't know if the hackers intend to try and get information about bank accounts from this, but I don't trust them.

I just wish they put their resources and energies to more positive uses.

If you are worried about such things any of the 3 main credit info companies such as equifax (sp)

will put a 90 day fruad alert on your social for you.

I had to do it a while back and it was a very easy process.

I was more upset that someone would send bogus emails using my account. They didn't have access to my bank card information as I leave it blank after using it.

I just don't want Mom or someone to open up a bad link or get some virus due to this security breach.

I have given a different email account that I don't use for business purposes, and have notified everyone of it. More of a pain in the rear than anything else.

Understandable. I have 4 emails. One for the club, one for personal/ business stuff (coupons..)

and one for creditors.. they love emailing me and calling me! I think they are my biggest fans rabbit

I have four emails too. One for personal use and the other I use for stores and commercial use. The other tow I don't use much, but are back up if one gets compromised beyond repair. So far a few people I know (including my sister) have had their email compromised where I have gotten deals from a Prince asking for money to transfer a large sum to my account.

You are not alone on this problem, my email was hacked and used to send spam to all in my address book.

I went to the troubles of changing passwords and such.
I finally closed out that account and started over.
