Just a heads-up for anyone who has or has ever had an account with the Burning Shed people.
They’ve emailed everyone for whom they have an email address whose data they believe has been compromised.
According to the message I received, they have lost a load of email addresses and passwords – nicked as a result of hacking activity – although they believe that no payment related info has been compromised.
Their web site is off line as a result, and they have nuked all the passwords that were currently in use.
If you think you may be affected, you might want to check your browser to see if the saved password you used for Burning Shed was also one you’ve used elsewhere. We all know full well that you should never do that, but like everyone else you’re human, and you may have been lazy about it…. so check up, and if you have re-used a password, start changing it wherever else you’ve used it, and do this immediately. As in NOW.
