Verizon customer database hacked; 300,000 entries leaked online | Android Central

This isn't SGS3 specific, but this is a busy forum and you guys can help spread the word. Someone supposedly has hacked Verizon Wireless' account database (ZD Net has seen the data and says it is real). The information includes account passwords, and was stolen in July.

Please change you Verizon account password, and tell anyone else who needs to know.

BIG FAT EDIT:
The original story from ZD Net has been updated. Verizon says (and confirmed by the hacker) that these are FIOS customer records and not wireless records.

If you're nervous about it, change your password. Not a bad idea to change it periodically anyway.
