It says "SECURITY AND DATA BREACH NOTIFICATION CLICK HERE". Does one click on it or is it a virus or something?

I clicked it. It just explains the password reset occurrence. It does look pretty shifty now that you say something. I have a bad habit of clicking things, fortunately everything on the computer is disposable.

Think how clever that would be... click on "security data breach information" for information but its actually a Trojan horse for a virus.

Yep, I'm pretty gullible when it comes to that stuff.

I'm losing half the page to these warnings and notices...

Makes sense they would use security to break into your computer, all this security BS is starting to get annoying. What do they hope to get from a site like this?

Your tap card and chip card can be hacked by the person standing next to you, keystrokes can be tracked on your computer, don't click on links in emails... the list goes on and on. A guy in Visions the other day told me never to buy things online with a credit card or even PayPal use prepaid credit cards.

Most online computer security sites actually contain worms and malware to cause you to increase their use?

Heard the other day those sites people always warn you about (porn sites etc.) are actually some of the safest sites on the web.

Nowadays I usually Google anything in emails or I see online that sparks my interest, I don't click on the links. Not sure if it works but I believe search results may bring up security issues if it's common with those links.

Just goes to show how suspicious we all are, I was thinking the same thing until I finally read it! I'm never too worried about someone hacking into anything of mine, bank account wouldn't get them too far, and if they stole my identity, they would probably feel sorry for me!
