Have You Changed Your Email Password Lately?

Per this recent article blog article on NYTimes.com

http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/03/16/passwords-of-8000-comcast-customers-exposed/

it seems that over 8,000 Comcast e-mail addresses and passwords were exposed in a file that was posted to a website dedicated to writing.   I do not know what if the affected customers were located in a particular state or across Comcast’s territory.

Whether or not  you are a Comcast Internet customer, now would be a good time to change your email password and your passwords for sensitive sites – like online banking – if you haven’t done so in the past 12 months.   Comcast customers can change their password online by logging in at http://www.comcast.net

E-mail me for more specific instructions if you don’t know how to change your password on another service.
