The email account of Palm Beach Councilwoman Bobbie Lindsay has been hacked, the town said in an alert late Friday.

“This breach may have resulted in emails being sent from [email protected] account to recipients, including you,” the town’s email said.

As soon as officials became aware of this breach, “we took immediate action to secure our systems and isolate the compromised account,” the town said, adding “our IT security team is currently investigating the incident to determine the extent of the breach and to prevent any further unauthorized access of that email account.”

Councilwoman Bobbie Lindsay's email account was hacked Friday, the town said in an email.

Lindsay told the Daily News on Saturday that it’s easy to be fooled.

“Even if you recognize the sender, one must be very careful when clicking on attachments. The town’s IT director reminded me that the perpetrators keep improving their game. Going forward, I am committed to being much more diligent,” she said via text message. “This was a nightmare!”
