as most of you know Mt Gox was compromised yesterday. About 61.000 accounts have their username and email addresses published publicly in the process.
Now, this might be very important for many users:
I have different passwords on all the mentioned sites BUT I use the iPhone and the mac sync features.
Also, I used Notes, Mail, Calendar sync googlemail <-> mac <-> iPhone
So, I wondered even though I have different passwords: if they got to my GMail account, they possibly could get my notes (containing some passwords), mail, google contacts, spreadsheets, etc.
So maybe it is a good idea to change everything which might have been stored with google, dropbox, etc.
Not only your gmail password but also any passwords which were ever stored with google or were mentioned in one of the mails or on one of your google documents and so on.
More tech savvy guys should eleborate on this (since I do not really belong to this group - and I know I shouldn't have important passwords on iPhone notes)!
BUT I think a lot of users have and that's the reason for this post
(The breach might have much more consequences than thought of at first).
Yesterday someone bought 5 highly priced eBay auctions of mine (which were marked as domestic wire transfer only) and then sent me a mail asking if PayPal payment wasn't possible otherwise he wants to draw back from the purchase (which of course I did not agree upon).
Researching his email address I found out, that the email address was part of the published Mt Gox Accounts file (as was mine).
@ users think really hard about what accounts might all be compromised.
@ smart tech guys: please help to bring some light upon this shady subject in this dark hour
