As most of you know -I was hacked this past Tuesday – In various fashions -I asked if you were free, or had time to talk.
The “from” name was “Gary Turner” -the email address was not email@example.com
The common denominator was everyone he /she hacked had an @hprosearch.com email address
For a while -if you get a strange request from me -or something out of the ordinary – check the email address
Do not respond the request -call me -as most of you did. Just for safe practices, I would suggest changing your email password.
Below are the instructions on how to change your email password at our hosting company
Remember -you will also need to change the passwords to the new password on your computer, phone and tablet
Go to https://hprosearch.com/webmail
Login with your full email address and password
You should be at a control panel with several email options.
Toward the middle of the page is Edit Your Settings.
Click Password & Security
Enter your new password twice.
Note that here you can also adjust your spam filters, autoresponders, or forwarders.
I was hacked about 4 months ago -the same email was sent to only one recipient -hopefully this will
keep us all safe – It is a good practice to change all your passwords a few times a year
I would also suggest getting an AV and Malware program if you don’t have one – this is important since we are all on the internet
a lot -and receive a lot of emails from people we don’t know.
