DreamHost warns users of password hack


DreamHost customers should change their passwords ASAP.

That's the word from the web-hosting service and domain name registrar, which sent an email to customers over the weekend saying that their FTP passwords may have been accessed by hackers.

The company said it had reset all customer FTP passwords as a precaution and that users would have to create new ones by logging in to their DreamHost web panel. It also advised customers to change their email passwords, though it said email passwords and billing information were not accessed. DreamHost added today that handling new password requests was taking some time.
