Information Security Awareness: – RootsWeb Free Community-Driven Tools Compromised

We received information from haveibeenpwned indicating that RootsWeb, a free community-driven collection of tools used to share genealogical information, has been compromised. RootsWeb does not host sensitive information such as credit card or Social Security numbers, but usernames and passwords were compromised. More information is available on the website. If you subscribed with a username or password that you use for other systems, please change those passwords right away.
