Yahoo account compromised

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Hi all, it seems my yahoo account was compromised and it is tied up with so many other accounts, including this one. It is where most of my msg notices from this site are sent. And right now it is not letting me send out any msgs from Yahoo and I have already changed my password twice this morning trying to solve issues with it. So bare with me.

    Thanks everyone, I am hoping I got it all settle now. Seems someone from another state got into it and sent out some spam msgs to some people in my address book. But we couldn't see any thing else. So I changed several security issues with the acct per Yahoo and my boyfriend who just happens to work in the "IT" field. I am sure hoping that is the end of it. I have a lot of msgs to catch up with still though.

    I was 'compromised' recently as well! I did not fare as well as a lot of my blogs/data/emails/photos/friends were all deleted!

I do hope you can get it figured out!

    I had to leave yahoo as they/I could never fix my account. I've been with gmail for over 3 years and so far so good.
