Every company that does business online is subject to the nefarious types getting in and trying to steal data.  ComiXology, the digital comic distributor is the recent victim of a hack attack, and the company is encouraging everyone to change their passwords immediately. That being said, with so many users flooding the servers, many are reporting connection errors when attempting to log in via their mobile devices.

According to the site, no credit card data was stolen.

    Changed my password as soon as I got notice of it. What worries me is the email said its “recommend that you promptly change your password on any other website where you use the same or a similar password”.

      That type of message is standard when anything like this happens. The reasoning is that whoever got in may have copied that info, and they may use the info to see if you have the same password on other sites or services, particularly things such as MMOs or services where there might be even a slight chance of making a profit or where they might be able to steal your credit card info.

      Many game sites and MMOs will even go a step further and suggest you to have a different password for everything as an extra level of protection (such as one for your email, another for your game, yet another for your forum and so on and so forth).
