I was hacked

Post by Matt Flynn » Thu Jun 03, 2010 9:41 am

Apologies to anyone who received spam from my email address yesterday.

My Gmail account was compromised.

I've had plenty of hack attempts on FFF, but it's the first time it has happened to my email, and been successful.

It happened despite a secure password and security software on my PC.

Google shut down the mails immediately when I reported the problem.

I suggest all FFFers beef up their passwords on their home email accounts etc, because it is nightmare when security is compromised.

It took me a day to reset my other passwords and look for other hack attempts etc.

Meanwhile, if anyone bought the pills and they worked, let me know ... :lol:

I'm sore about it alright :banghead:

Quite a common hack too, from what I have since read.

Have been getting a few emails from the Tassie forum. It appears they were hacked today and emails have been going to members and some tool has been trying to get members to download a toolbar from another site. I always delete these things pretty quick but forums are an obvious target it seams...
