Did anyone else get the email the other day?

It claims that their database got hacked, and the links in the email don't lead to the actual site, but lead to some support helpdesk.

Should I be worried that none of the content on the helpdesk asked for my information?

[Edit: Also, it lead to a 'account' recovery page which I believe deeply to be a phishing attempt.]

Please be careful!

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.
