Changed my password right away just in case. I understand that no site is 100% secure, but these companies don’t seem to be trying at all to protect personal information…

It never does any harm to be prepared for these sorts of things. Sometimes the hassle though can be annoying.

Unfortunately incidents like this seem to be happening more and more frequently these days but in this particular case the thing that I thought was inexcusable was that the stolen data files weren’t even encrypted.
