Today we received a nice email from ECM Records listing some of their new releases.
The first thing we noticed was that they pasted all of the email addresses beginning with “b” and “c” into the CC section. This means that everyone receiving the email can see who it was sent to.
The larger problem is that somehow all of the passwords that people used when signing up for the ECM Newsletter were also included. And if you are like us, the same passwords get used for multiple websites.
As of right now it appears that ECM has given all of their newsletter subscribers the email addresses and passwords of everyone on their list.
If you have registered for the ECM Newsletter we strongly suggest that you change your email password.
Multiple calls to ECM in New York were busy.
