Monster.com Hacked Again

January 26, 2009 at 10:17 pm | Posted in Technology | Leave a comment

For the second time in the last two years, monster.com had user identities stolen by hackers. I finally took action and canceled my account with them – there wasn’t much information in my profile, just my first name, last name initial, and my home zip code. Fortunately, I left all my other fields blank and had no resumes or other private information stored on their servers. I suggest that everyone looking for a job cancel their monster.com account and look elsewhere – I’ve found better leads on Dice and Craigslist.

I will still give companies the benefit of the doubt the first time something like this happens, but I’m not giving them three strikes. Two strikes is all they get.
