Ta - seems to be big problem have had three messages in last two weeks from 3 separate entities about data security breaches and emails they hold. Have been getting emails linking to twitter for no reason I just delete them straight away
I had to close one of my hotmail accounts for this reason, and my Mums yahoo account has recently started to do the same thing, I dont think that it has anything to do with lovehoney, I think that there is something out there that has been able to hack these accounts and start sending emails.
It's not hacking I don't think, it's when people don't use good enough passwords, or use the same password for everything so that some dodgy site gets it and then uses it to send spam messages. Or it could be linked to a virus/trojan type thing on your computer that can access your email.
Best way to avoid things like this is use a strong alpha-numeric password like ky2534xl and download some free anti-virus software.
It's still a good idea to have virus protection, even on a Mac. A lot of Mac owners think they're completely safe from viruses, which just isn't true and that's how they get caught out. While it is true that most viruses are targetted at Windows OS's, this doesn't mean there aren't viruses which can affect Mac OS, so it's a good idea to get protected.
