What bothers me about this is that there is no goddamned good reason for Nvidia to have your personal information in the first place. It seems that every website these days requires that you have a a username and a password and supply them with all kinds of info to get it. Whats worse is that by the time you ever need to return to most of these websites you don't remember the username and password so whats the point?

No, this was their forums, You don't need an account to download drivers or browse, just to post.

Eh, it's a dev community. The people who had their stuff stolen will take the precautions necessary and we'll be hunky-dory afterwards.

90% of the problems caused by attacks is related to the fact that users are idiots. We don't have as much of that problem here.

..It's a forum, you pretty much always have to sign up for them. As far as this forum and user information goes, I think only a username, password and email address is required. Anything else you provide is of your own volition.

If only the internet had some sort of discussion board where you didn't have to sign up to participate, some sort of anonymous posting system. If only.

It's 2012. Get a password manager that generates a different unpronounceable password for every junk site and autofills your login for you.
