The advice on passwords is that you should use different ones for each site you use. Makes sense, but a few major hacks down the line Googole is cheerily informing you that 132 of your passwords no longer safe. That's an awful lot of changing.

The original article about this on the OS has been updated. The club has been informed by the service provider that no password or payment data has been compromised.

Still concerned that the club/ third party was informed about the potential leak opportunity in March and acted on it, but are now acting like the first time they were aware of it was when the news broke 2 months later. The article doesn't mention who they disclosed the bucket to but someone in one of the organisations has certainly dropped the ball on acting properly as defined by the DPA.
