    E-mail hacking

    Many of you are aware that the email addy that I had for over 30 years, was recently hacked. This morning I heard from PhilC a member here was also hacked. He also had his email addy for many years.
    The purpose of this email is to remind us all to be real vigilant.
    It's all chicken, even the beak!

    I use password generators for most sites and a password manager.

    It was, and that account dated to 12.29.00, yes 2000. BUT, I beat them at their own game, swiftly addressed the issue and stopped them before it got worse. Bright side is I was actually able to restore my original account which is now protected with new, very secure passwords.

    The worst part was the time it took to quarantine, systematically scrub, and restore with new passwords which also meant time on the phone with ISP tech support. All my new passwords are unique, long, gibberish utilizing several special characters that will be changed on a much more frequent basis.
