Flash! Booksformykindle.com hacked?
The other one I think I’ve heard about the most is
I hadn’t visited it, but it appears tonight it has been hacked. Going to the site just gets you a hacker sign (thanks to Janean Sparks in the Amazon Kindle community for the heads up).
If it’s actually been hacked, I feel bad for them.
Some of you may have used the site, of course. Are you at any risk? Well, I would think the only information about you they could have gotten is your e-mail address…I think that’s the only personal information (besides your name?) you might have put there.
Amazon would have eventually made them change the domain…they have asked people with “Kindle” in the domain name to change it before. This may precipitate that move.
Regardless, it’s always unfortunate when someone’s site is hacked by someone else, just for the point of defacing it.
