"A Los Angeles publisher of online lifestyle and entertainment magazines has inadvertently exposed the personal e-mail addresses and passwords for hundreds of its subscribers, InformationWeek has learned.

The victims are all members of sites operated by Splash Magazines Worldwide, which publishes local versions of its magazines under URLs like NYCSplash.com and LASplash.com..."

If you have an account its probably best to change your password.

What I find so confusing is why this site even contained their subscribers email passwords?
