| CompuTip - Has Your Email Password Been Leaked? J20

Have your passwords, personal information, emails and other items been leaked?


According to The New York Times on December 14th:

SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo, already reeling from its September disclosure that 500 million user accounts had been hacked in 2014, disclosed Wednesday that a different attack in 2013 compromised more than 1 billion accounts.

According to the Times of Israel on November 30th:

Millions of Google accounts have been hacked by new malware that attacks Android phones, Israeli software security company Check Point warns.

The malware allows hackers to gain complete control of the phones and steal user information and passwords.

Check Point experts who discovered the hack say some 13,000 phones are being infiltrated every day, Channel 10 reports.

Here’s a way to check whether an email account has been compromised – try this site. For more information about the site, read this article. You can also try CheckPoint's site here to check out whether your Gmail has been hacked.

What to do if your email account has been hacked? First of all, change your password. Then check out this site for gmail and this site for Yahoo.

Note: If you have an Android phone, you should have an antivirus program installed. One of my favorite sites suggests downloading AVAST here. I recommend AVAST for PCs as well. It’s excellent and free – but I always tweak it after installing it on my clients’ computers to make it work better, with fewer ads.

Please note:  Unfortunately, I cannot take any responsibility for use of the software, directions or links suggested. I have no interest - financial or otherwise - in the software or sites listed.  Use at your own risk.
