A helpful tip for AOL users Email

AOL finally confirmed today that crooks have stolen credentials and address books from some large number of AOL users. (They say 2%, but that's only the ones they know about so far.) So we suggest you take some routine security precautions.

Specifically, we recommend that you change your postal address, phone number, employer, date of birth, and spouse. Oh, and you might as well change your password, too.
