My Gmail Was Hacked

It is a second time in the past week that my Gmail was hacked. Apparently, password changes cannot help at all, and my contacts receive Viagra and other health advice that I never thought of, neither endorsed. The first time there was no echo from the recipients, but today I woke up with some worrisome messages in my mailbox.

I do apologise to every one of my contacts! Any ideas on how I can successfully battle Gmail account hacking? It seems that password changes do not help at all.

I am also wondering what Google does in that direction. What are they doing to protect the users of their Gmail service from something like this happening?

These are the things you should probably do:

  1. Do not open the link in the email you have received from me today!
  2. If you do, please scan your computer for viruses!
  3. In general, do not trust emails that sell prescription drugs like Viagra, Cialis etc.! These drugs are available to individuals only if they hold a prescription. They cannot be sold online or without that paper that your urologist gave you.

Let me know if there are any problems!

      Well, Editor Ma, you’re are guarded by the Great Wall of China. So need not to worry about your Viagra. 😉
