The latest disclosure does not seem to be a new hack, but one I received notification of back in 2013. I know I changed my password back then - Feb 2, 2013 at 6:00 PM EST to be exact. I also changed my password Dec 24, 2013 at 8:28 AM EST so am not sure which time priod the "new" revelation refers to. I also have not seen any indication of a problem actually taking place on my account since 2013 so not sure what the actual problem really is other than they have not been very good at protecting accounts. While they announced the hacks, I have not seen any news reports giving any information on how, or even if, the hacks have been used to anyones detriment so not sure what the purpose of the hacks were in the first place.
