Hackers on the loose

January 31, 2013 - Jodelle Greiner
Everybody should double-check to make sure their e-mail hasn’t been hacked.

Recently I got an e-mail about Raspberry Ultra Drops from a friend in Texas. The ironic thing is this friend of mine hates raspberries. When I joked to her about it, she said her e-mail had been hacked.

Yesterday, I got the same advertisement, supposedly from a local friend. I told her what happened with my other friend, and she reset her password and took other steps to safeguard her account.

If you get an e-mail from someone that pops up right away with a link and no personal message from them, don’t click on the link. Sometimes these links carry viruses and other problems. If you aren’t sure about an e-mail someone has sent you, notify them. If they really did send it, they’ll let you know. And if they didn’t, they’ll be grateful you told them.
