Yesterday I received an email from someone I know who passed on about this time last year. It isn’t the first time he emailed me posthumously, and it won’t be the last. In fact, he isn’t the only dead person that emails me. What is so urgent that this legion of apparently living dead have to communicate from the other side? Well, as you can guess, it was spam and not for life-extending supplements.
In last Tuesday’s Tech Tip I discussed the need for strong or “hardened” passwords. As I’ve said before, and will say again today, too many people use the same too simple password for too many website logins too many times. In short, a lot of legal nurse consultants are using the same password for PayPal, eBay and First Crushing Debt Bank online banking sites as you use for your gmail. It’s time for this to end – today.
