My Verizon e-mail account has been apparently hacked into. I suddenly stopped receiving e-mails in Outlook but could still send e-mails. I found out that someone had turned on forwarding in the Verizon webmail settings and put in an e-mail address of firstname.lastname@example.org. I contact Verizon and notified them that this occured. I also changed my account password.
I aleady had a 10 character password with a mix of uppercase and numbers.
Before you ask, yes I have checked and there is no key logger that got installed on my computer.
I use Norton's and Malwarebytes to keep my system protected.
I am somewhat concerned at this point because not too long ago someone hacked into my router and every night between 11:00pm and 11:15pm my phone line activates like someone turned on the handset and then turned off.
It's not a cordless frequency issue because I have changed the frequency several times.
If I turn off the cordless base I don't hear anything during that time frame, however I'm not convinced that it's any kind of problem with the cordless base, I think someone is phishing my phone line.
Thanks for the input though, I do agree that 6 characters doesn't cut it and I always encourge others to use at least 9 characters with a mix.
