So, I'm probably a little late to get to this, but I just noticed today the notice regarding the data breach.  Has anyone obtained more information about this?  There was a comment about various kinds of information being posted online somewhere.    Here's one news story I've been reading about it: http://www.zdnet.com...-sports-forums/

thanks for posting the link to the article about the breach.

 

sorry but VerticleScope has not given me any additional information about this. the only info i got was the notice that everyone else got, telling people to change their password and explaining how to contact VerticalScope etc.

 

                   http://www.verticals...ata-breach.html

 

if they tell me anything more about it, i'll be sure and post it.


these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.

If you haven't done so already change your password and also any password that uses the same password here.

OK, thanks for the replies, everyone.  It will be interesting to see if any additional information becomes available.

It was reported late last year (2017) that it happened again:

 

'2nd Breach at Verticalscope Impacts Millions'

 

https://krebsonsecur...lscope-impacts/

 

Once again, if you haven't done so already change your password here and also any password that uses the same password as this website.

You're welcome.

 

Never use the same password for different websites. What hackers will sometimes do if they get someone else's password & email address is "fish" other popular websites, and if it is a one that accepts both, well, then you may very well have problems, like unwanted charges on your credit card(s). ohmy.png mad.gif sad.png
