Trapster hacked, possible passwords and email addresses stolen

Trapster LogoI just received an email from Trapster that their website had recently been the target of a hacker. The email also notifies us that our passwords or email address may have been compromised due to the attack. This attack only comes a month after the attack on Gawker media where thousands of users passwords were stolen. So if you have a Trapster account I highly recommend that you log into your account and change your password immediately. Here is the email below:

Dear Trapster User:

The Trapster team has recently learned that our website has been the target of a hacking attempt, and it is possible that your email address and password were compromised.  We have taken, and continue to take, preventative measures to avoid future incidents but we are recommending that you change your Trapster password.  As always, Trapster recommends that you use distinctive passwords for each site you visit, but if you use the same password on Trapster that you use on other services, we recommend that you change your password on those services as well.

For information on how to reset your password or improve the security of your passwords for your Internet usage, please click FAQs.

Sincerely,

The Trapster Team
