JobStreet advises to reset password after claims of info leak

Louie Diangson, writing for Yugatech;

JobStreet has sent emails to its users advising them to reset their password after a post on a Malaysian online forum claim to have account information.

I received the same email, since I have not used or open my Jobstreet account for as long as I can remember, I just deleted the email. Retrieving it from the “Deleted mailbox”, here’s the full text of the email.
