PSA: NetGalley Security Issue / Hack

Well, Merry Christmas Eve and I hope everyone that celebrates is in a swath of comfort, in the best way possible. Poor NetGalley.com, the method isn’t stated, but along with the fact that their homepage was defaced, they were hacked. Evidently they store passwords in clear text. Tsk, tsk. A security incident that involves you as a member, as you hopefully have seen in the email that was sent ( if you are, in fact a member ):

Change your passwords and if you used the same one for any other accounts, change those, too.

Guys and gals, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley.
