Did anyone else here get the e-mail from Zappos about customer information being compromised?

Yes, I'm glad they let everyone know. I worked in IT for years, and most security breaches like this are because someone didn't apply a security patch right away. It's just frustrating because if it was someone being lazy, it definitely could have been avoided.

This morning, my neighbor told me her husband's debit card information was stolen and used the next state over. I really should stop using my debit card so much. It's so easy for people to get skimmers these days, and I rarely give a second thought to handing my debit card to someone at a drive thru when I know it's really not a great idea.

It's a non-issue for me.
