I am not saying you were hacked, I am telling you. "In one of the largest single data sets of e-mails yet discovered" end quote. Over 711 MILLION email addresses were found on a spam list. There were actually two lists found but one just had e-mail addresses in a list format and the other contained some personal information and possibly passwords. <-- YES PASSWORDS So while you are working on changing your passwords on your e-mail accounts and websites, I pressed one button on my computer and changed most of my passwords (none of which I remember or need to remember) in a few minutes automatically, and it is all synced up with my phone .

Warning

Warning: False Disaster Relief Funds I think it goes without saying, whenever we have a huge disaster on our hands that the evil greed comes out of some folks who try and turn a profit on misfortune. Please remember before you donate to some random "Go-Fund-Me" site that you check it out and make sure that it is run by a valid organization. During disasters such as the flooding in Texas right now, we strongly advise NOT using any of the crowd funding donations sites and stick to official disaster relief organizations that are well known and trusted. They can apply the funds where needed or in some cases push the money to other organizations. Even some of the well known organizations do not apply as much of the donations to their cause. Be sure to fact check their websites and ask around before sending your donations. [(OFFICIAL) Texas Disaster Relief Office of the Governor: Please consider contributing to the Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster...
