My Email has been hacked.

My email was just hacked, so if you received anything from my MSN account, please deleted it.  I haven't sent anything from this account since yesterday morning.

If you entered a contest and you are the winner, the email will clearly state YOU WON! in the title and those are safe.

UPDATE:  Everything is ok except that my account sent out spam to my saved addresses.  MSN recommends that you change your password every 3 days.  PFFFT -- like that gonna happen.  I did change it and will try to change it weekly. 

I know several people with AOL accounts that were also hacked in the last week, so I don't feel alone.

  5. O0hh no! My email and my BLOG was recently just hacked as well. I had to change a lot of html stuff and my posts ended up not appearing on people's feeds. It was such a frustrating experience. I finally fixed it though. By the way, here's the new URL where you can find Random Ramblings.

    Hope everything will get fixed for you. Sorry; some people really just don't know what to do with themselves.. tsk.

  6. Sorry to hear you were hacked. This just happened with my yahoo account. It sent all my contacts viagra advertisements. One of the contacts is my son’s teacher. I was really embarrassed.
