My thordora gmail account was hacked last night, suspiciously soon after linking it, stupidly, to my youtube account. (The ONE TIME i don’t pay attention to this crap and look what happens…)
So yes. I’ve been hacked. My account is, seemingly, back in my safe and loving hands, and I am not stranded anywhere, least of all London. Nor would I ask the 479 contacts in my gmail for money, considering I wouldn’t know 465 of them if they were the ones who mugged me in the street.
So I know, and it’s been fixed. And all my passwords have been changed, as well as unlinking all possible accounts. I’ve never had anything like this happen, and it was oddly disturbing. And quite freaky.
So-change your passwords to something hopelessly obscure, don’t repeat them on various sites (although I didn’t do that with this one) and be damn sure to NOT link accounts together.
Gah. What a bloody mess.
