That's terrible Merlin - do you mean that you think the person who is a pest on this site hacked your email?

sorry can you clarify. My password on this site is different to that which I use for my email account. I don't recollect giving Katie my password to my email account when I registered.

Sorry for the confusion flower
No not the password for signing in here.

If there's any danger of my email account being hacked by anyone then I change my password for my email account.
I'm just playing safe !

It's recommended by email providers as a regular thing
to do anyway.

It's always a good thing to change your email password.

Just to clarify, what happened to Merlin's email had nothing to do with this site.

I got an email from a friend who just experienced this. If anyone calls and says they're from a well-known company (Microsoft in this case) and they want to remote into your computer because of a software issue with your operating system, or because your computer is running slow, do not let them. My friend watched as they took her passport, credit card info, passwords, bank statements, and then locked her out of her own computer, which now has to be formatted. Because this was a "hack" there was no way for her to turn it off. Beware ladies

Hi nothing to do with here...I think because I posted on Stacy's FB page when the nutter was on there...I don't even give a toss about Stacy just hated the way it reflects on the rest of us.....you have to feel sorry for her what a pathetic lonely life she must have.

Vi what kind of a password are you using - too easy ones?

Mine contains
an uppercase letter,
a number,
a haiku,
a gang sign,
a hieroglyph, and
the blood of a tyrannosaurus.

I haven´t had any problems so far...

Info for all!

To make a password unreadable by hackers, it must be complex : combine uppercase and lowercase letters, insert numbers, your password should not be short. You can also use a password as phrase you can easily remember.

And avoid the password like this :




And here the list from 2011 :

# Password Change from 2011
1 password Unchanged
2 123456 Unchanged
3 12345678 Unchanged
4 abc123 Up 1
5 qwerty Down 1
6 monkey Unchanged
7 letmein Up 1
8 dragon Up 2
9 111111 Up 3
10 baseball Up 1
11 iloveyou Up 2
12 trustno1 Down 3
13 1234567 Down 6
14 sunshine Up 1
15 master Down 1
16 123123 Up 4
17 welcome New
18 shadow Up 1
19 ashley Down 3
20 football Up 5
21 jesus New
22 michael Up 2
23 ninja New
24 mustang New
25 password1 New

Having a good anti-virus helps as well. Keep your definitions updated. Dont rely on auto-update
