Paypal, Facebook, Twitter, Xbox Live, Dating Sites and Email Account Hacked - JUNE 17

The hacker group Lulz Security is claiming it released log-in information for 62,000 private internet accounts Thursday, including Facebook, PayPal, dating sites, Xbox Live and Twitter.

This internet group hacked along with the email address associated with the accounts and posted all this information online. The good news is that an anti hacking website (go HERE) listed all the email addresses effected. Simply search for a keyword in your email address and see if yours is listed (For your privacy, do not enter your complete email in the search box.). If it is, go change your password! (but the damage has probably already been done).

Thankfully, none of my info was on the list!  Don't EVER post your email addy in a forum nor or on a blog.  If you notice that the majority of blogs have a "Contact Me" button so as to protect the reader, as well as, the blogger from unscrupulous people.
