LJ Security Issue

From news: LiveJournal is fixing a security issue on the site. Summary: You don't have to do anything. From now on, all journals will be accessed via a custom subdomain (http://username.livejournal.com for users, http://community.livejournal.com/username for communities). "Old-style" references to journals will continue to work, via a redirect.

Read the post in news for more info.

ETA: Left unaddressed, this security issue allowed malicious users to potentially gain control of your account, so it's probably a good thing that the LJ staff is addressing this.
