    The message goes on the say the site in down for 48 hours so passwords have to be changed at this time.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    If only hackers would use their powers for Niceness instead of Evil.

    sounds like not all of the data was compromised, but still a good idea to change your password.
    of course, you can't change your password, because the site is down.

    plus, it is another reminder that we all should be using tools that generate unique passwords for each site (see "lastpass" or "onepassword", for example - and, no, i have no position in either of those companies)

    I thought you were going to say someone found out shipping really doesn't cost them $15 a cd.

    I'm as old skool as you can get. I make up my own passwords and change them regularly.
    I will not trust my passwords to the cloud or another party. I write them down in my password book and employ a rather small alligator to watch over it.
    Anytime more than one person or entity knows your password it can be compromised.

    Of course any individual website can get hacked and along with it I assume your password.
    I am a Yahoo user(through AT&T) and thank you Melissa for sharing my password with everyone under your watch. The GREAT YAHOO HACK!
    I still get an occasional spam email for Russian brides, penis ehancer or info on how to deposit money in a Nigerian account in order to collect my $500,000USD check.

    the best suggestion i've heard (and used) is to not answer the questions with real answers.
    eg: Q - What is your favorite color
    A - monkey

    (don't worry - i haven't given anything away..monkey is not really my favorite color )

    It was hacked by DGM USA. If I got an email it's in a spam folder.

    About passwords, the head of infosec at a previous job taught us a cool technique for making up strong, unique passwords that are easy to remember. I use it all the time, but it drives my family nuts. Seems simple to me though.

    It was:

    1. Use a word for the site you'll automatically remember, like for Amazon use Amazon, for Progday use Progday. I'll use that for the Wrapper.
    2. Choose a Theme for all your passwords. I'll use G0Yankee$. The zero will be the required numeric character and the dollar sign will be the required $#%@$ character.
    3. Choose a number you'll always use for all passwords. I'll use the number 4.
    4. Insert the theme at the correct number space in your Word, so in this example after the 4th character in Amazon. So you get:

    ProgG0Yankee$day


    So all you really need to remember is G0Yankee$1 and the number 4 for every site. I've never found a site for which I couldn't easily choose a word that automatically suggests itself.

    Make sure you order the penis enhancer well ahead of the Russian bride!

    (sorry, I know that was too easy, but I couldn't resist).

    Bill I fell for it and went ahead and ordered it, but passed on the Russian Bride since my wife informed me I wouldn't need the penis enhancer if I ordered one.
    As far as the penis enhancer I was really excited when the pkg arrived. Visions of hours of marital pleasure danced in my mind, until I ripped the plain brown wrapping paper and opened the box...only to find a magnifying glass...

    One minor suggestion based on my experience...skip the % as a special character. I used to incorporate it in one of my stronger passwords but it was rejected or botched by several sites who have weak infrastructure (folks with programming background can probably guess why). It got easier to simply use other specials instead rather than remember who could take it and who couldn't.

    Hi John, I had the same thing with my password about a month ago, but went ahead and changed it and all looks ok.
    I do have the not secure symbol in the url where the lock is, but geeesh, I can't remember ever not seeing that.
    Be safe my friend..

    I have Norton and using Firefox. I too have a "caution" symbol in the Padlock. Norton said it's from "images" posted in threads. No problem with my password so far.

    Uh oh.....Image with a Virus.....in a Virus thread....

    Prog Ears doesn't run over HTTPS, so it isn't secure.
