Hi guys and gals, my computer, at least my email, has been hacked into.
If you receive a SUSPECT email, apparently from me, and it doesn't look right, please delete it.
I have been running a security check on my computer, and if that doesn't work, I'll be changing my email supplier.
If you need to contact me, please do it through BHO mail. Thanks.
Apologies if any of you have been affected, but I'm trying to sort it.

Thanks for the heads up. Hope you get it straightened out

Be sure to change your password -- that way whoever hacked into it will have to try to hack into it again. Use a password with both letters and numbers because they're harder to hack.
Yes, I know from experience, it's happened to me, my son, my daughter and my husband at different times and years. Changing the password has so far worked for all of us.

I hope you get that sorted and do not let it spoil 2011 for you.

Thanks Smoke, I'm setting up a new mail account with Google, I'll put it up here when it's done. Have a great New Year.

If your e-mail is hotmail do not worry about it. A problem has occured with hotmail which os world wide. E-mails are being deleted. It is a glitch but not a hack.

I had some guys in Indonesia come after me after I wrote a blog critical of Julian Assange. They got round my password. I had to switch it up to a new one really quickly. Not sure how they got it. It was a throwaway password I used for noncritical websites. I saved my good one for ones I don't want hacked. I had to use a good one on my Facebook account to keep 'em off.
