HCG Ultra Drops hack - how do I know who was comprimised?
Posted on 2013-01-30
I have received emails allegedly from friends with the link to the fake Foxnews page touting HCG Ultra Drops.
This of course is a hack, but who has been compromised?
My client is getting many of the same emails and wants to know that his email is secure. I didn't know what to tell him (other than change his password).
I received thee emails from people I know. Not very many considering the size of my address book.
He has received at least ten - four from people who's address is in both of our address books. However he uses Outlook Express and I use Eudora.
So the question is, have each of these senders been hack? Or is it likely one of us?
How do I research this and, of course, are there any additional steps to guard against it other than updated virus protection and changing passwords?
