Cafepress.com Data Hack!

LifeLock just notified me that Cafepress.com, (Linked from here - CC Store), has been Hacked and certain User Info is now on the Dark Web.

For me, e-Mail Address and Password associated w/ Cafepress.com, (and here), may have been stolen. It is recommended that the Password associated with the affected Account(s) be changed! Anyone else who's ordered from the Store in the past should do the same.

Thanks TL, as a shop owner, I appreciate being told these things. I'm wondering why CP didn't e-mail me.

Well, CP DIDN'T e-Mail me, either... However; when attempting to Login there, the Site keeps the Account LOCKED UNTIL you first answer one of your Security Questions, (IF that's set up by you), AND THEN IMMEDIATELY making you change your Password.

Apparently, over 20 MILLION Users have been affected!!! :smt119

Yeah, I had that. There was a notice on the page about changing passwords to include keys that are typically used only in coding.

What was weird was that the answer to my question was wrong. So, I had to go in and change that too. It doesn't look like anything on my account was affected. I'm going to have to update it though. They've added some products since I last logged in.
