Hi Folks, over the last 6 weeks, we have observed that the email ids of many people in our extended network have been hijacked by hackers. While Hotmail seems to be the easiest to crack, we have also seen Yahoo and Gmail ids hijacked.
Its a real problem once your email id goes this way, because the hackers get access to your email id and change the password, and use your address book to send lots of spam mail from your id, and you will be forced to spend lot of time in damage control.
So to protect your email ids, please change your password ASAP if you have not changed it in the last 2-3 weeks, and keep it cryptic. This is the best protection.
And to protect against any key-logging script that may have come on your computer from somewhere, please regularly delete all cookies and Internet temp files, and run anti-virus once every week. Let us know if you want any help.
