AOL confirms Mail service hacked

Post by CheenaGringo on Tue Apr 22, 2014 12:59 pm

"AOL Mail has been hacked and several users have reported their accounts are being used to send spam to others.

Although AOL has confirmed the hack, which thousands were complaining about on Twitter, it is currently unknown how widespread the issue is.

"AOL takes the safety and security of consumers very seriously, and we are actively addressing consumer complaints," AOL said in a statement. "We are working to resolve the issue of account spoofing to keep users and their respective accounts running smoothly and securely."...........

Wow.......I didn't know AOL was even still in business. I haven't seen a .AOL e-mail address for many years.

Several of the Web Boards I belong to have been overwhelmed with SPAM attacks. A few people who haven't bothered to change their email addresses are still hanging on to their AOL.com accounts.

Believe it or not Outlook (Hotmail), Yahoo and AOL are included in the top 6 email services. One might take a look at their demographics to understand why?
