News broke out yesterday that there have been reports of people having their accounts broken into, and then their usernames and/or passwords have been changed.

Basically, if you use Origin now is a VERY good time to change your password.

While it isn't likely that a lot of damage can be done to you, it's still a good precaution to take.

Does anyone even use Origin?

If i had the choice between using origin or never playing any game newer than 1996, i would chose the latter.
