Email security is important; hackers can get access to other accounts | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

  • A Richfield woman lost access to her Windstream email account.
  • Hackers began trying to move money to new accounts and opening accounts.
  • Unique strong passwords or pass-phrases can help thwart unauthorized access.

A Richfield woman’s recent experience losing access to her email to hackers is a good example of the importance of email security. It’s also a reminder that your email provides the keys to your online accounts. 

Anita Gantner thankfully hasn’t lost any money at this point, but the hackers moved nearly $35,000 from her retirement IRA to a different company and also tried to move $350 from her bank. She’s spent countless hours trying to regain access to accounts and cleaning up the identity theft mess. 

In early June, Gantner stopped getting new mail to her Windstream email account, which she accesses on her phone and computer. She thought that was odd. It wasn’t prompting her by saying her password was wrong or asking for a new password. She just wasn’t getting new email.
