About 5 hours ago, I was checking my emails on my Iphone and found an email on an account I don't use often. 

 

The email title : Registration on Turbobit.net

 

I've NEVER heard of this site before! I clicked on it and in the email it says "You have registered in File Sharing Service..."

 

Your Login: MY EMAIL

Your Password : A PASSWORD I USE FREQUENTLY! (but not the password to the email itsself) 

 

Ever since reading this email, I've been pretty freaked out and I don't know what to do. The fact that one of my few passwords has been used to sign up to a website I've never heard of/ didn't sign up for.. makes me wonder what other info and other passwords whoever signed up for this has of mine.. I searched the site name and found another person 2 months ago had the same exact problem. He received the same email with his password in the email. 

 

What steps do I need to take to protect myself? I'm scared of logging into any bank accounts on my computer to change passwords. I feel like doing so, will only give them more information! I don't know whether the password was tracked through my laptop, my desktop (Both Windows 7) or my iphone (if possible). I don't know where to start. 

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.  :mellow:
