    1. Glad you are one of my contact that received the phishing messages posted by bot/hacker. You know what I’ve come to discover is it goes beyond those 25 worst password. I think its better to change password if possible every 3 months.

  3. Few hours ago I log into my skype account. I discover somebody (or bot) was making post to my contacts that were online at the time. I changed had to change my password immediately.

    From my personal experience online, many people won’t take this serious. The saying is people to buy prevention. They only buy cure. But it may be too late then when it comes to your online account because you may not get access to it again.
