Hackers Crack Hershey’s Website, Change One Recipe

Hackers recently broke into Hershey's website, apparently changing the ingredients on one recipe and accessing some customer data login information. If you access any online recipe-sharing site, including Hershey's, it's a good idea to change your website passwords and similar login information. According to The Consumerist, the company issued a statement stating that "The Hershey Company never asks you to supply or verify sensitive personal or financial information via email; only provide this type of information through a secure website. If you receive a request for this type of information, you can be confident that The Hershey Company is not the organization making the request."
