Hi Folks,

Here's a story that will scare the hell out of you and should do 2 things.

1. Educate you about what new types of attacks are out there.

2. Move you to take immediate action to protect yourself

Follow the 2 links to read about it. (copy & paste the URL's in to your browser)

This first story is from "Computer World" written by: Sharon Machlis

The second one is written by the person who was hacked and is a well know writer for "Wired": Mat Honan

This is a must read for everyone!

I hope that this helps you.

Jack
