Brinkster.com is a webhosting company.If you use Brinkster for hosting your site then this post may help you.In talking to Brinkster I realised that some Binkster hosting accounts may have been compromised.
“Brinkster has reason to believe some User Names and Passwords may have been compromised. Your password has been changed has been changed for security precaution. Please see the following link for help with retrieving your password”.
This is scary as what happens if someone hack the system and destroy the website image that I have been trying to develop over the months.
Probably its time to take a look and evaluate all quality web hosting sites.Not that I had problems with Brinkster as this is first time happened to my account.
