I'm going to deal with it tomorrow, just found out as I don't read my emails daily.
Anyway, if any a2kers get an email from me with a link to some site that sells raspberry jam, that wasn't sent by me.
I hope you don't open the link, if it is a hack.
Far as I can tell it, whatever it is, sent this to all on my present listed contacts at yahoo.com.
It's similar to what happened about a month ago when everyone in creation got an invite, and maybe more than one, pleading with them to check me out on Linkedin.
I think yahoo owns Linkedin.
All very embarrassing. Apparently I sent this stuff to my eye surgeon, Medicare, old colleagues, people who have died that I don't want to erase from my contacts, the local Water Authority, the trust that funded my care of Katy, on and on. Oh, and [email protected]
. Hah. Jam for the hamsters, but where is the toast?
I'm working up a list of new and different passwords.
I'll be sending people real emails explaining - but that'll take a batch of time.
I'll be moving my contacts list off the computer to a print out hard copy - erk, work! Will probably change email provider - it if the yahoo connection pans out (I don't understand hacking and its ramifications). Of course, another email provider would have my info then, when I send emails, but I'll avoid keeping a list.
Any advice welcome. (I have an old mac, if that matters, and am not connected to any networks that I know of.)
edit - I just remembered, I got a lot of emails saying mail from all sorts of people couldn't be delivered - those daemon notices, but this time from others to me.
I did get a real email from a friend who was telling me my computer was probably hacked (she got the jam notice), plus ordinary emails I get from art websites and so on.
