I hope this gets the attention it deserves.
I am not happy with how things are for me today here at IUOMA's ning.
For one thing, Val's mail ends up several times a day in MY inbox, not in his.
I can do nothing about this problem.
He says it all started when his email was hacked into. Since then, his private correspondence at IUOMA is being changed against his will. I am in the process of changing every password and preparing to leave the IUOMA if this problem is left to linger.
I do not like to receive other people's email, do you?
I seriously fear we are now the recipients of a worse problem than Val thought. Here your average hacker can bumble around and decide for himself how to ruin things for others.
There could be more than one problem involved with this hacker deal.
My understanding of hackers is, they aren't careful, and can leave messes behind them which nobody can sort out.
Also, they might bring other nasty consequences along with their presence, such as malware/spyware.
Is your security loose? Maybe so. Maybe I'm wrong here.
It could be I do not know enough about how spyware and malware are used.
However, it is my belief anybody experiencing hacking of any kind in his/her private online life should stay out of publicly shared sites altogether until such time as things are totally clear in his/her computer setup and his/her online presence is pristine enough to be safe for others.
Please see what may be done. But act quickly. There's a buildup of mail to Val in my inbox already, and more coming every time I check.
I've tried contacting you alone via a note to your inbox, but got no response. I thought this way I might have a better chance. I mean, other mail might get hacked into now Val's mail has gone viral.
I will not be back unless I hear the All Clear from you personally.
Meanwhile, I'll be checking into my own computer's security and make ample provision if necessary.
Thank You so much for your time and attention in this matter. It would help me tremendously to know you are aware and are taking steps to prevent more problems with security here at IUOMA.
