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.

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.
