I've Been Hacked! Please Help Me Find and Kill Those Responsible

Okay, just kidding, I don't mean kill, but maybe hurt badly, or at least tied to a chair and forced to watch old reruns of golf tournaments... with loud obnoxious music in the background. Someone has used my msn email address to send a whole bunch of spam, some of which you may have received.

As much as I'd like to help you get a great deal on Viagra and/or mail-order brides from Thailand, I had nothing to do with these emails, and have taken measures to insure this doesn’t happen again.

In fact, I had to start completely start over. I was completely frozen out of my old account. Changing passwords and running McKafee and Spybot didn’t seem to stop it. Thus, MSN stopped it for me.

I now have a new e-mail address. I have lost most of my contacts. If you feel like you need to contact me and get my new e-mail, you will need to respond to this blog or my Facebook page. I will then contact you.

Speaking of which, besides changing my mail account password(s) on every account I have, starting a new e-mail, and doing a virus cleaning on my computer, should I be doing anything else?

Sorry, and thanks!

  1. Ummmmm..I DID close out of your email accounts last night when I signed on your kiddos, to make sure that kiddos didn't send some funny emails on your account. PLEASE tell me that the hacker was before that. :o)
