Unhappy Computer/email breach

Just received an email today that their site with email addys was breached. Be careful of what you open and by whom!

The same thing happened to Hilton International. They used the same email company. There are probably a few more companies that have this same breech.

This can do no more damage or any more dangerous than the email your friend sends you that is a "Message from George Carlin" and says "Send this to ten friends".

Take care,
Mike

*knock on wood* I haven't gotten an email yet. And I figure if I was going to, it would have happened by now. Which is kind of surprising, considering that one or two of my email addresses should be all over Disney Destinations' system. Including my @disney.com email address itself.

...and yet another one, this time from Target. It seems that most of these companies use Epsilon, and that was the one which was breached. Good luck and don't answer anything you are not familiar with. Viruses are nasty things!

I also heard from Hilton today, also Target and TripAdvisor last week. So much for privacy.
