AOL Urges Password Change

AOL urged its "tens of millions of members" to change their passwords? Who are they trying to kid? Maybe they accidentally said "tens of millions" instead of just "tens."

AOL Inc on Monday urged its tens of millions of email account holders to change their passwords and security questions after a cyber attack compromised about 2 percent of its accounts. The company said it was working with federal authorities to investigate the attack, in which hackers obtained email addresses, postal addresses, encrypted passwords and answers to security questions used to reset passwords.
