Jawbone says 'limited' number of MyTALK accounts hacked

@ 2013/02/13
If you have a Jawbone headset and MyTALK account, you may have received an email from the outfit warning that you'll need to reset your password due to a security compromise in a "limited" number of accounts. The company said it halted the hack after "several hours," however, and that thieves only stole names, email addresses and encrypted passwords -- but no other user information, so far as it can tell. If affected, you'll need to reset your password by following the instructions (in the PR after the break), and Jawbone also advised you to change it on other sites too, if used elsewhere -- never a good practice, incidentally.
