    Yes, but it would have been nice have done that BEFORE they snagged my basic addy. I did change mine, but now that the cow is out of the barn it's really of little use...

    FWIW there's more you can do with your Google email obsfucation... in addition to the "+" effect, you can scatter as many dots "." around as you like, as they are ignored so that tivofanboy@gmail.com can receive mail addressed to ti.vof.a..nbo.y@gmail.com

    That is cool! I wonder if Hotmail does anything similar. I use them for my main address. (I have been using them since before they were even owned by MS)

    Edit: Apparently there is. In fact Hotmail actually offers real aliases, so you can setup a completely separate email address and have it routed to your Hotmail account. :up:

    Ugh. I'm getting sites that don't accept a "+" in my email address.

    Are these emails saying the email address could have been taken or definitely was?

    Also, if they know what company the email address was used to send emails for, the the danger isn't just getting more spam.

    You hit it. Imagine getting an email from TiVo. It could either be a phish or a malware link.

    Either you SOLD the info to Epsilon, or gave it to them to manage and pay them. Either way it is YOUR responsibility to ensure OUR information is kept secure.

    Have you ever heard of a SOR-Statement Of Requirements.

    I assume you're holding every entity affected by EPSILON's breach to the same standard and communicating with all of them in the same way telling all of them their responsibility to ensure the info is secure.

    Does Tivo have an internet forum convenient to him? Because this isn't it.

    Got a letter from Walgreen's today.

    Dear Valued Customer,

    On March 30th, we were informed by Epsilon, a company we use to send emails to our customers, that files containing the email addresses of some Walgreens customers were accessed without authorization.

    We have been assured by Epsilon that the only information that was obtained was your email address. No other personally identifiable information was at risk because such data is not contained in Epsilon's email system.

    For your security, we encourage you to be aware of common email scams that ask for personal or sensitive information. Walgreens will not send you emails asking for your credit card number, social security number or other personally identifiable information. If ever asked for this information, you can be confident it is not from Walgreens.

    We regret this has taken place and any inconvenience this may have caused you. If you have any questions regarding this issue, please contact us at 1-855-814-0010. We take your privacy very seriously, and we will continue to work diligently to protect your personal information.

    Sincerely,

    Walgreens Customer Service Team

    Over at slashdot there's a story waiting for promotion to "officialness" entitled

    Epsilon info breach was your fault

    http://slashdot.org/submission/1519286/Epsilon-info-breach-was-your-fault


    which makes the point

    " The amazing part of the story is the tone of the letters from banks. The letters from Chase and Citi, both say effectively: "your data was stolen, here's what you should do to protect your data." They then go into a litany of minor data hygiene practices, failing to point out they themselves did not vet their vendor's security practices. There is no claim of culpability for bad security policy nor any indication that they will try to do better in the future."

    I hate both Citi and Chase. So this news is no surprise to me. Just business as usual.

    Another one. This time from Target. Wonder what "law enforcement" is going to do?

    To our valued guests,

    Target’s email service provider, Epsilon, recently informed us that their data system was exposed to unauthorized entry. As a result, your email address may have been accessed by an unauthorized party. Epsilon took immediate action to close the vulnerability and notified law enforcement.

    While no personally identifiable information, such as names and credit card information, was involved, we felt it was important to let you know that your email may have been compromised. Target would never ask for personal or financial information through email.

    Consider these tips to help protect your personal information online:
    Don’t provide sensitive information through email. Regular email is not a secure method to transmit personal information.
    Don’t provide sensitive information outside of a secure website. Legitimate companies will not attempt to collect personal information outside a secure website. If you are concerned, contact the organization represented in the email.
    Don’t open emails from senders you don’t know.
    We sincerely regret that this incident occurred. Target takes information protection very seriously and will continue to work to ensure that all appropriate measures are taken to protect personal information. Please contact Guest.Relations@target.com should you have any additional questions.

    Sincerely,

    Bonnie Gross
    Vice President, Marketing and Guest Engagement
