It doesn't belong in Hot Deals but since lot of us shops quite frequently @ GB, I thought posting here will help.

I remember some Slickdeals members had mentioned the site's security doesn't seem up to par earlier this year.

Thanks for the heads up,
Tofu Vic

I tried searching my email and it showed under one 'paste' but it's not clear which one. Has anyone else able to see their name under GB?

SD should do the right thing.
Discontinue connections with them.
Don't screw over members just for extra profits.

How do you know this website isn't a fake site collecting emails?Only a few retail sites I hate with a passion. Gearbest, Cabelas and those China direct stores (spammers) Slick Deal monetized accounts love to post.
You mean https://haveibeenpwned.com/ ? By looking at their wikipedia [wikipedia.org] page, it looks legit

You take a risk with any shady sites. This is exactly why I would never do a slickdeals rebate, as I am not sharing any personal info with them either!

If u paid through paypal all the time and the user name and password used is generic which cannot be linked back to your actual accounts, whats can they use the info hacked for? Trying to understand fallout.

Getting your personal info like address and name is very easy these days as companies sell it either ways.
