Email Hacked
Apr 4th, 2014 at 10:32pm
 
Once again, my email has been hacked after sending a PM thru this site.  This is the second time in less than a month.  I guess I should know better by now.  I would (as I'm sure everyone that uses this site would) really appreciate it if you would work on improving your fire wall and protecting those of us who frequent this site.

Steve easiest way is to send a PM to someone asking for their e-mail I have never used that function on any forum i am on. but hackers are way better than any firewall invented this isn't a gov't firewall so we can only get as good as we can

Sorry Steve, is it impossible for your email to get hacked by sending a PM through this site.

Can you explain why you think this has happened?

Just to let you all know, here is the PM I sent to Ron this morning.

Ron,
Thanks for your reply to my email.  Sorry I did not respond sooner.  I guess the saying about "assume" is correct.  My "thinking" in the heat of my frustration was that shortly after I was unmembered on WTR my first trouble with email hacking occurred.  The second round came right after my next PM on WTR was sent that it happened again.  Thus, my "scientific deduction" for the casuse of the problem.  After further investigation, I have found that my computer was not hacked but my email account provided was what got hacked or at least someone that I know got hacked and the virus listed my name as sender.  I sure wish people could find other ways of having "fun."
Thanks for removing my post. (He actually moved it to "Site Help.) I don't want to hinder the success of WTR.
Steve
