Hacked !!

Why would anyone be interested in me and my google account .. of all things ?

But this was true till yesterday when the google checkout thingy hadn’t come to the fore .. now with everyone owning 10 dollars each ( and if you are adventerous enough …. possibly your credit card money too ) , a google account all of a sudden has become a gold mine field for hackers.
With multiple websites providing access on google login .. someone like me who depends on google for his daily entertainment ( from ig to orkut .. everything is google owned ) a password hack would result in my online entity assasination.

anyway .. about ten minutes after the hack and password change .. the hacker started talking to one of my friends on gtalk .. why her only .. i have no idea .. but he asked her to transfer 25k to his account so that he ( me ) can go to phillipines .. 🙂

Here is the text of the conversation ..

utkarsh.khare: dont call now

After this she called ..and thankfully .. I could get my password changed by a little trick 🙂 .. He had already changed it from what it was originally !!
this time its a stronger password .. hopefully not guessable ..
Problem is .. i never login from net cafes and all .. so this can not be because of sniffing .. did someone guess my password ? ( i don’t think so .. it was a tough one ) .. or was it someone i know ( i don’t know anyone who knows my password and is cheap enough to do the above mentioned ) ..

The good thing is, after half an hour of trouble .. I am back to orkut and reader and ig 🙂

It probably coule have been better if she had taken the account number and we could have used that .. but all is well that ends well !!

Edited Later :: Thanks to Sreejith and Ashley 🙂 .. Thanks a LOT
