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.

Note: all comments require an email address to send a confirmation to verify that it was posted by a person and not a spambot. The comment won't be visible until you click the link in the confirmation. Unless you check the box below, which almost nobody does, your email won't be displayed, and I won't use it for other purposes.
