Heightened state of paranoia: password protection

June 19, 2008

No sooner do I mostly clear up the bloggy debacle, I get an email from my cell phone company saying that access has temporarily been blocked from online access because someone repeatedly, unsuccessfully, tried to log onto my account.


I called, and apparently at 12:28, today, someone was trying to access my accounts.

Either someone really has it in their head that they need to snoop, or Yodlee was trying to log on. I can’t tell which, but I’ve changed all my passwords again. *aigh*

Let this be a lesson to you, folks, protect your passwords and make them nonsensical to anyone but yourselves!

    I hope you get this sorted out…

  2. Seriously, you’re worrying me. If you need to like.. totally BAM, disappear, do it. …

    That really sucks.

    Yet! Even though it is unfortunate that someone is being so. . underhanded, and that it is probably someone you know, it also isn’t a huge deal, is it? It’s not like getting a terminal illness or losing everything you have. . like it’s not devastating. I might be wrong, but I can’t imagine what can be so horrible about it. (if they try to steal your identity and credit, I can see how that would be horrible.)

    savingdiva: I think I’ve got it sorted now, just changed passwords and double-checked everything.

    FB: I’ll let you know if I have to go Witness Protection Program! Wait, doesn’t that defeat the purpose? 😛

    1001 petals: It’s more of a pain than anything. I’m tired of waiting for my Google rank to be more than zero, for to let me back in, for my readers to find me again if they can.

    It just takes up a lot of time to kind of start over, and when I take into consideration that the person is also trying to sabotage me at work, doing things I won’t get into here, it’s frustrating. Attack me at work if you must, but leave my personal life out of it! 😛

    So no, I still have my perspective and it’s not nearly as bad as all that.

    This is quite scary indeed. What would motivate such a person???

    e.c.: I’d like to think I’d be able to figure such a person out so that I could watch my back, but I’d be a little uncomfortable understanding such a person.
