Totalise email hacked and password changed
This afternoon (I guess based on weird bounce back emails from emails I didn't send landing in my inbox) I had my totalise email address hacked and the password changed. Is there anything I can do to retrieve this email address?
Re: Totalise email hacked and password changed
Can you be more clear about what you think has happened?
Given that PlusNet email services do not implement SPF records, it is would be all too easy for anyone to send out emails appearing to come from firstname.lastname@example.org (or whatever) even though they have not.
To do this there is no need to gain access to your email account. This is called email address spoofing. SPF is a means of specifying that emails from email@example.com can only originate from specific SMTP servers. That said if the spoofer uses the same SMTP server its not overly helpful.
Sadly I would anticipate more spam protection emails in respect of emails you never sent.
