Online backup firm Carbonite tells users to change their passwords now
As part of our ongoing security monitoring, we recently became aware of unauthorized attempts to access a number of Carbonite accounts. This activity appears to be the result of a third party attacker using compromised email addresses and passwords obtained from other companies that were previously attacked. The attackers then tried to use the stolen information to access Carbonite accounts.
The moral of this story: always use UNIQUE passwords for each website or service!
