My personal email account was hacked, SPAM messages were sent to everyone in my contacts (only some 8,000 people), and my contacts and messages were DELETED.
Sadly, I was not alone. A few other folks I know in the edtech world suffered the same fate as me last week.
So, why am I telling you this? Simply to help you protect yourself.
Go into your email account. (Yes, right NOW.) Make sure your passwords are secure. If you use Google, activate 2-step authentication. Be safe. Be secure.
