AOL Data Breach, User Data Stolen

AOL Logo

AOL is reporting a massive data breach which affects a “significant amount of users”.  AOL is recommending users change their passwords immediately.

According to AOL’s Security Team:

This information included AOL users’ email addresses, postal addresses, address book contact information, encrypted passwords and encrypted answers to security questions that we ask when a user resets his or her password, as well as certain employee information. We believe that spammers have used this contact information to send spoofed emails that appeared to come from roughly 2% of our email accounts.

If you utilize AOL for your consignment software’s email functionality, or for your personal email, please be sure to change your password right away.
