Curiouser and curiouser

Some of my email messages in my yahoo accounts have mysteriously vanished.
Some I may have deleted, others I know I didn't because I was keeping them for reference.

Someone may just have hacked into my account? Maybe. Went and changed my password.
In any case...

oh sh*t!!

Oh that sucks :( Whenever my email gets screwed up, I completely panic. Don't think I've ever been hacked, though (but who knows; I've put my email out to about a zillion accounts and people over the internet... someone has probably messed with it.)

I sent you a couple of emails last week concerning mentoring stuff. But they are at your hotmail account.

Those are safe.
I didn't get the chance to reply to the last one, but I got it.

Actually, you ought to both change your password and the secret/security question. Whatever question you choose, never answer it with the straight truth because that is infinitely easier to guess. For example, if the question is "What is your paternal grandfather's name?" don't answer "John Smith." Answer something like "BlueTango John Smith Peanutsauce."

Sarah Palin (yes, that Sarah Palin) got herself in some hot shit because she answered her security question honestly and her account was subsequently hacked and splashed all over the internet.

Been trying to find a section about the security question in Yahoo, but couldn't find any.
Maybe they don't have one?

Here's the form that will enable you to change the question and answer.

Oh crud!

I second the changing of the security question. And while you're at it, better change the passwords of your other email accounts as well.

Also: I'll be posting my answer to the Zhao meme before the week ends. Nothing spectacular art-wise, but I hope I did justice to him in MS Paint. :)

I'm sure Zhao will appear glorious, even in MS Paint. That's just the way he is.

Ugh, that sucks. I hope the damage is not that big. :/
