S! All

 

I saw a news article where Newegg payment system was hacked. If you bought anything from August or September you info may have gone to hackers.

So much for "secure" https. I used to think it meant something. I bought a new gaming mouse from Newegg not too long ago (order date 06/30/2018)... it sat on my shelf unopened until I just installed it yesterday. Maybe I got in just before the breach...no email yet    :unsure:

I bought all the stuff for my flight simulator workstation update from Newegg July 28, well before this breach (I hope). :-0

It appears from what Butzzell's article said, the hack took place from Aug 14 through Sept 18.  Hopefully we're both safe....

a bunch of my stuff for my new driving rig was in that time period and some from New Egg so I will let you know if there are any repercussions.
