I’ve got a giant BULLSEYE paint on my computer!

They are watching you so make it harder to be hacked!

Seems that ADOBE, Apple, Java(Oracle), Microsoft and well everyone that is a software developer is emergency patching these days, and why is the big question. The answer is foreign country hackers are out to take down the west (you and I). Recently warning signs have been up to watch your Facebook, Twitter and Apple accounts because hackers have trolled into the systems and may/may not have gotten at some vital data. I can’t understand why people have all this energy to hack software just too maybe get basic account information, oh wait I know why and here is the WARNING you need to pay attention to!

WARNING WARNING WARNING

The reason is people are creatures of habit and that user ID and Password typically contains similar information used in every one of your online transactions. So here is what you need too do and do it now!

Change Bank Account LOGIN INFO!

Change often used Account passwords – vary those 4 characters and mix the types –

Samples:              12345678 BAD                   1q2a3v4k Better               1(zg9^X8  Best

Yes mixing things up is needed and a great idea and while it is a pain to remember it is far better than someone clearing out everything you have!
