thanks for your quick response! i really appreciate it.
i did have the same password for both accounts.
few questions just so i could learm more about this stuff:
what does it mean to have my account "hijacked"?
how does this happend? how did they do it?
why do people hijack email accounts? what do they do with it?
i did one day select "remember my ID on this computer" on the yahoo mail page, does this have
anything to do with it?
Some of these you don't have to be a geek for! Weee!
Don't trust my answer completely, but I believe I know what some of the answers.
What does hijacked mean? It means just like a car being hijacked. Someone stole your e-mail account maybe.
How does it happen? Sometimes an e-mail can contain stuff that can give a hacker access to your computer.(Not so sure on that one)
How did they do that? Well, the e-mail gave them access probably.(Not so sure aswell.)
Why and what would they do with your accounts? It could contain information they want, credit card numbers or maybe something personel. They could get this information and use it to their advantage.
Remember your ID? I don't think that should have any effect.(Not so sure).
Trusted techs correct me if I am wrong.
Remember, don't trust me completely on my answers.
I would say if you still have access to your e-mail accounts change the password of each to different passwords.
