Yahoo..security alert! Identity theft at e-mail provider!
It came to my attention this morning as I was heading in to Los Angeles that unknown parties have been zipping off e-mails from the Yahoo web site purporting to be from me!
In the caption at the head of the e-mails it states that the communications are from Julian Ayrs.
And, firstname.lastname@example.org is the return address being used on the bogus e-mails.
That's not my e-mail account!
Last week, it came to my attention that personal data on me (and others) at the MyBart web site was hacked and compromised by a group known as "Anonymous".
Are they the culprits?
And, if so, to what end?
At this juncture, I caution individuals who have an e-mail account at Yahoo to be alert and wary of suspicious e-mails at their web accounts.
