Email Compromised, Hacked Email
This morning at 5:45am, I could already feel the groans. Only, the groans were not originating from my throat. They oozed out of my iPhone5 through notifications to my email. Understanding friends and colleagues let me know that my email had been compromised. My heart sank. The very last thing I would want anyone to receive from me is SPAM emails, but more importantly, I wanted to make sure that anyone contacted by the spammer would know what to do when you got SPAM.
The news has been filled with companies notifying consumers when their credit card and personal information have been hacked. Last year, a large banking company contacted customers after a personal computer with customer information was stolen from a laptop. We’ve gotten used to hearing it in the news as something that happens “out there”. So what if it happens to you?
