Make sure you have good passwords ... I learned the hard way today!! :(

I had my iTunes account hacked or something (guessed my easy security question) today. I had to contact Apple on an unauthorized charge, it took me about 30 minuets to get everything settled. Just a reminder to have good passwords AND good security question and answer. Has anyone else here had there account hacked before?

    My yahoo e-mail address got hacked once. Someone started using it to send trojans to everyone in my address book with the subject of the e-mail set as SURPRISE!!!! Then when they opened it, it looked like a link to a e-card but instead it started downloading a trojan. It took me a while to get it all fixed. I'm glad I didn't have to fight with the company or anything but it was still lousy. Sorry to hear that though! Just be careful that you don't make your security questions too hard. My husband likes to pick a random question and then answer it with a random object close by. After not being able to get into one of his accounts for a while because his favorite movie was "juice", he learned! LOL

      Glad (well no glad that everyone is hacking but you get my point) that I am not the only one making a mistake. I am also suprised that yahoo and apple accounts have been hacked. They are two VERY big companys and cannot belive that they have security flaws.
