Hmmm…Maybe It’s Time To Change A Password Or Two.

I received this a couple of weeks ago, and keep meaning to put it up, but keep forgetting.

Remember back when I was talking about the mugged in London scam? Well, here’s a detailed account of what could happen to you if you get hacked. It’s pretty scary. Not only could your friends start sending money to some douchebag hacker, but said douchebag hacker could delete *all* your emails that you have chosen to archive to the web in an attempt to cover his tracks. Yup, all that stuff that you kept in the cloud because it was sooo much less vulnerable to sudden failure? Gonegonegone.

Thankfully, that poor woman got all her stuff back, but oh my god what a mess.
