Actress Kristen Bell has urged fans to change their Twitter.com passwords out of fear they may have been compromised when her account was hacked on Sunday (26Aug12).
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star's social networking site was targeted in the early hours of Sunday morning by an Internet prankster, who posted a cryptic link on her page in order to steal log-in information from unsuspecting followers.
And now Bell has reached out to fans to alert them of the security breach and apologise for causing any inconvenience.
She tweeted, "My twitter was hacked by some dipstick-dont open the 530am tweet abt (about) 'stalking ur twitter' it's a link designed to steal passwords. To be clear- if u clicked on the link I'm not positive ur passwords were compromised- but I would change them just in case. Sorry guys."
