    reverb discloses data breach exposing musicians personal info
    Popular musical instrument marketplace Reverb has suffered a data breach after an unsecured database containing customer information was exposed online.

    Today, Reverb customers began receiving data breach notifications stating that customer information was exposed, including customers' names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses.

    Yeah, same here. Not sure what else we're supposed to do. Sounds like no financial information was leaked, but I keep a pretty close eye on my credit card anyway so I should catch any fraudulent charges.

    In truth, all the PII that was compromised is already out there. Passwords and payment details weren't among the compromised data. But other aggregator services who rely strictly on Google-able details already have WAY more detailed profiles generated about me (and the rest of you too, I'm sure ).

    I changed my password just because why not
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    When one of the 3 major credit reporting agencies gets hacked, nobody's personal info is safe anywhere.
