Members, over the years, your personal security is more important than ever. I have strengthen my passwords many times for the simple reason, I am a target of hijackers or hackers as much as you are.

The sweep link is by Dashlane.com and is a blog article about the details behind password security. This is one of the best I have ever written stories on the subject.

I want to share this because over the years, I would get a email from a person that I would know as a ST member but had a scam link in the contends of the email. I knew you didn't send it and the only answer was your email was hacked. This is why you would receive a email from me.

What was the one thing that was not said on the security side is, I know the bad guys also hack the unknowing user to basic steal your computers ability to use it to send out emails to your whole address book(s). Note I added (s). the reason is there a number of secondary email databases used by many. These are referred to as "Zombie" or "Hijacked" computers. The worse part about Zombie and Hijacked computers are sought out because they have no virus and malware protection on their computers. The bad guys download a program to send then sends a email to all of your friends. Then use other lists to send from your computer and you might not even know it.

I mentioned this story and my comments because I know some have weak passwords. You should consider seriously changing your passwords if they might be weak and especially on public email like Yahoo and Gmail.
