Dwolla

July 18, 2011 | Published by DWOLLA.

Good afternoon Dwolla user!

It's come to our attention that one of the merchants whom you have done business with has had some security issues.

While we have not seen anything like this effecting Dwolla users directly, we suggest taking a moment to change your password to alleviate any concerns.

To reset your password simply follow these steps:

   1. Login here
   2. Click Settings
   3. Click Change Password

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to respond to this e-mail.

Thank you for your time.

- Dwolla Team

I got this e-mail too.  Dwolla does business with many other types of industries, not just bitcoin.  So, did a bitcoin related site get hacked or did some other obscure website get hacked?

I got one.

Oh, and only in Iowa would they actually name a street after a crop-destroying pest:

They might figure that some people use the same password for both Dwolla and Mt Gox. It's probably just a precaution.

I'm sure everyone who has even a remote chance of being affected got one of these emails. I doubt it's related to bitcoin at all.

Still around.

I think they are warning everyone who uses Dwolla.  I don't think they are notifying people based on who they have sent/received from.
Edit: I'm stupid, "one of the merchants whom you have done business with"

I have a Dwolla account which I used to transfer money to Mt. Gox a couple of weeks ago.  I have not got one of these emails.  So it's likely that this is not related to Mt. Gox, or is related only to those who initiated transfers to Mt. Gox before the accounts were re-verified.

I'm curious as to what prompted this.

I do notice that their "reset PIN" page is not functioning and/or disabled [update: is successful as I do get an email with a new PIN, but see an error page on the site]:

Same here.  I got the email and have only used it with MtGox and my bank.

I got one, and realized my existing Dwolla password was horribly weak, so I changed to something much better.

I got the same email and realized that the 'Login here' link doesn't point to dwolla.com or dwolla.org. It may be on the up-and-up, but certainly looks like a phishing email. Be careful.
