This last fortnight has seen its usual share of security and scam alerts, but a couple really stood out as noteworthy for iTandCoffee readers. I have also included a third, about a Paypal email scam email that had a new 'flavour'.
Millions of Yahoo accounts hacked!
For those of you with Yahoo email accounts, make sure your read this article about the theft of the account details at least 500 million users by hackers.
If you have a Yahoo email address, consider updating your security across all your online accounts.
Here is another article published recently on the topic of online security: How to stay safer online - adding an extra layer of protection
A different PayPal scam email this week
This week, I received a different 'flavour' of scam email about PayPal.
This one alleges that a new email address has been added to my PayPal account!
Once again, don't be caught out by scams like this. the first sign is that it says Dear Customer.
The email address that it cam from was also dodgy.
But even it it did include my name and the 'From' address look legitimate, I would never click on the attachment or link in the email.
I would to to the PayPal website, log in from there, and check if there were any alerts or messages.
Please share your news of other scams
