I received this email from the TripAdvisor CEO himself, Steve Kaufer. Unauthorized third party had stolen part of TripAdvisor's member email list! that leads to a portion of member email addresses were taken but the passwords were remain secured. The affected members will somehow received unsolicited (spam) emails as a result of this incident.
Goshh.. For the time being, my inbox is free from any unwelcome messages. And I do hope it will remain unchange till forever! Huhu.. Dear TripAdvisor, thanks so much for updating us about this. However, kindly resolve this serious problem as soonest possible, squeeze the current security policy and catch that naughty data theft hackers!
