Seeing Joule’s entry on July 10, I also want to let you know that my Yahoo mail account has been hacked recently, or to be more specific has been PHISHED, which means that my mailbox sends out e-mails form my box, without me even knowing it. It sends a link with a virus, that spreads through your computer when you click on it, so your computer could be phished as well.
Here is a safe link from Microsoft that tells you all about phishing, if you do not know yet.
or go to WikiPedia:
I got such an email from Skipper 8 as well and did not open it either because I had already been infected by clicking on a link that my friend Margie (Crys) sent me, WITHOUT knowing because her email box had been phished too. All these mails seem to come from YAHOO accounts, from hacked YAHOO email address books that is.
When I found out I blocked my credit card, deleted all the passwords I saved on my computer, DELETED ALL THE EMAIL ADDRESS in my YAHOO address book, (too late that is!) have to reset all my passwords, which is quite impossible, in short it’s total computer mess here.
So I want to warn you if you receive an email from my FORMER email account DO NOT OPEN IT, because I am no longer sending any mails from this account.
Former email account is:
I opened a NEW CLEAN account WITHOUT any email address in my address book (I printed them out on a sheet of paper) at:
I have sent another e-mail addy to close friends already.
Have a nice and virus free day!
