Script kiddies were busy last night – compromised email accounts

I received 3 spam messages from two people this morning that would never send spam. I looked at the email headers and sure enough the emails came directly from them.

Tips for dealing with an email compromise :

1. Change your password asap

2. The new password should contain 8 characters or more.

3. The password should not be a dictionary word.  Include at least 1 number and 1 Special character.

5. Ensure your password recovery options are up to date.

7. Change passwords on other  sites and services.
