Where do people get off on this! [smilie=2guns.gif]

Went to check my emails this morning to see If my application has went through to the University yet and It wouldnt let me sign in. Anyways when all comes toall they have froze my account because of my password repeatedly being entered and being wrong :( Managed to get it reset and sorted and now the same thing has happened with my Apple ID on my IPhone :(

Anyways have sorted that now too! This happened to Si a while ago too, he wasnt as lucky though and had to get rid of his accounts! Thank god it wasnt my bank details :shock:

Si changed his over and has had no problems since. Im glad Apple spotted funny activity because Im connected to the Itunes store, so they have all my bank details too! It really is a pain in the arse, some people deserve a slap at times [smilie=2guns.gif]

Fortunately our hackers just seem to have decided to get into our address books and send spam out, with no subject and just a link, erm, yeah like my contacts are stupid enough to click anything without an explanation of what it is!

im forever getting stuff from old email accounts of friends containing spam etc.....the funny ones are the fake mails that ask for your password and details like you would be that stupid as the email looks as fake as a 50 pound note with a tellytubby on it.....people actually enjoy doing vile stuff like this and its very much a part of everyday life for some so we need to keep our security sharp and safe so that we dont allow these saddos to get their own way :wink:
