Several individuals who were on the contact list of my USTDC Yahoo email account received bogus emails today due to someone with an ISP in Poland hacking the account. The emails contained only a link to another website. This is the second time over the years that this has happened. I thought I had sufficient safeguards in place to keep it from happening again, but apparently not.
If you were one of those who received the bogus email, I apologize for the inconvenience. I never send emails with just a link in them without also explaining why I'm sending it and what the link is about.
I have taken several steps to ensure that this doesn't happen again, but in today's world there are no guarantees, unfortunately.
