Yes - their message to me was that my account is being held in some kind of suspension until I change my password. I am still able to go on so I'm not sure what the point is. I have not changed my account and won't until I get some sort of explanation - have a fear of companies or websites that ask me to do that.

Yes, someone was posting semi naked girl type stuff. I got an email that they are trying to take care of it. I know that because they gave me the photos.

Lorie same thing happened to me. I haven't been on there in forever and I kept getting these notices. Friends of mine were wondering about me on FB because it was all so out of character for me.

If it is an email asking you to click a link to change your password, please do NOT follow those directions. Most likely it is a phishing email - wanting you to enter your login and password, so that they can then use your account - spamming, etc.

If you are worried about your pinterest account - had new boards show up that you did not add, etc, then log directly into Pinterest and then change your password.

When I go to Pintrest they have me in Safe mode. I can still go into the site ,but they are highly recommending to change your password.

A friend of mine on FB said their Pinterest account was hacked.

I am always leery of anything weird - and I am not about to change a password until I know it's official - that's a good way, if they are hacked, to get into all kinds of things.

Glad I'm not the only one.

Now Jean, what have you done to get logged off here? Did you forget to order the Daily Deal earlier in the week?
