EFinancialCareers User Database Cracked

I just received an e-mail from eFinancialCareers.com, one of the financial job websites I have mentioned to job seekers. According to the e-mail:

“Dear eFinancialCareers Member,

This week, we detected illegal access of the eFinancialCareers database which compromised our users’ information. We believe that our registered users’ names, email addresses, registered countries and encrypted passwords have been accessed. At this time, our forensic teams have implemented countermeasures and continue to investigate….” The rest of the letter warns of potential phishing attempts from whoever took the data.

This is why in my book I warn my readers about the consequences of leaving too much personal data on the Internet.
