SECURITY: TDAMERITRADE delayed reaction

2016-Jul-01

 

Dear Valued Client, 

The security of client information is a top priority for us. As part of routine monitoring, we have learned that client email addresses and passwords from a breach at LinkedIn® were compromised and recently published online. While the breach is not TD Ameritrade-related, we believe that the User ID on your TD Ameritrade Institutional account matches an email address from that breach. 

As a precaution, we have expired the password on your TD Ameritrade Institutional account. We know that many people reuse the same passwords on multiple websites, so it is important that we take this proactive step.* 

You will need to log in to your TD Ameritrade Institutional account to change your password. Please be sure that the new password you create is different from your previous one. 

If you have trouble accessing your account, or if you have any questions, please contact your Advisor or call TD Ameritrade Institutional at 800-431-3500 option 2. 

Sincerely,

John Tovar 
John V. Tovar 
Managing Director, Brokerage Services

Argh!

So because they have Clients that are boobs, I have to be inconvenienced?

And, I hate to tell them the LinkedIn breech was a LONG time ago.

I guess they had to figure out how to expire all the old passwords OR they just heard about it.

Argh!
