Subject: Possible breach of your Almanac Online password

> Dear Almanac Online registered user:
>
> This morning we learned of a possible breach of the e-mail addresses and passwords belonging to registered users on the Almanac Online website (including the Town Square reader forum.)
>
> While no credit card or other information is involved, out of an abundance of caution we wanted to alert you that it is possible that someone gained access to the e-mail address and password you provided when registering.
>
> While you may easily change your password by going to the Almanac Online website, logging in and then clicking on "Edit User Info," the more important concern is that you may have used the same e-mail/password combination with financial or other institutions. If so, we strongly suggest that you change your password at those other institutions.
