Financial Recruitment Site Hacked

If you are a under-employed Financial Services staffer like me, seeking your next gig, you might have registered at UK-based, global banking recruitment website eFinancialsCareers.com.  If you have, then skip on over there ASAP and change your password.  If you’ve used that password elsewhere, you’ve got some more changing to do. 

Oh, and take a lesson from this; don’t use the same password on multiple sites.

The British company believes its registered users’ names, email addresses, registered countries and encrypted passwords were accessed during the breach.  The website operator’s managing director issued a warning and apology to its customers over the weekend.  Neither eFinancialCareers.com nor its parent, New York Stock Exchange listed Dice Holdings, Inc. have released a public statement about the breach.
