Anyone else received email notification from Google that your WtW password has been found on the web?  Not sure if it's an isolated incident or if others have been affected.

Not that I’ve heard of, but I’ve reported the potential issue, and will contact the Admins.  Something to consider is it could be someone trying to spoof Google, and get you to reveal personal information.

Its not a big deal if your WTW password is compromised as long as you don't use the same password for other more important stuff like banking etc. Your browser will run a security check for you.

I also received a message from Google about password being compromised.  I've changed my password, too.
