I’ve been hacked by Paris Love!

Was just sitting down to write an informed, engaging, insightful blog post about social networking when the email went crazy.  My HiceSchool Twitter account had been hacked by Paris Love and all of my followers were under seige (sorry followers.)  How appropriate.  All of a sudden I was 24 and hot.  Ahhhh, I remember the days.  I was also female.  Now there’s an interesting twist.

Anyhow, I’ve been distracted and must deal with the hacker (Paris) and put an end to the nonsense.  Time for a new password.

Can’t help but wonder why Paris selected HiceSchool to hack.  Could it be the similarity to high school and all the naughty imagery that must come to Paris’ mind.  Or is Paris a really bad speller; she tried to find high school and found instead, hice school.  Perhaps she has seen my traditional sign off…Passion Rules!  Kind of risque, don’t you think.  Perhaps it’s my twitter photo…old guy running powerboat; rich playboy.   Right Sandra…my true love.  Who knows.  Hacked.

I’m tempted to visit Paris at her windows live messenger address, but I’m sure that would be a mistake.  So, not the first and in this day of social networking and interdigital communications, not the last.

A sorry end to the day.  Not so sorry.  It snowed in Raleigh. The best kind of snow.  40 degrees and melted on contact.  Pretty sweet.

Passion Rules!

    Hey there.

    Due to concern that your account may have been compromised in a phishing attack that took place off-Twitter, your password was reset. Please create a new password by opening this link in your browser:
    http://twitter.com/………………….

    This will reset your password. Remember to choose a strong password that is a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Do not reuse your old password.

    As a reminder, you should be extraordinarily suspicious of any third party that offers to artificially inflate your follower count. We do not endorse any of these sites.

    Please make sure to:

    * Scan your computers for viruses / malware, especially if unauthorized tweets continue to be posted in your accounts even after you’ve changed the password.
    * Check the Connections page at http://twitter.com/account/connections and revoke the access privileges of any third party applications that you do not recognize.
    * Avoid providing your username and/or e-mail and password to untrusted third-party sites.
    * Remove any updates that you did not post personally.
