I was hacked! I think?

Last night there was post under my user name about Singer Lari White. Which said that she died on Thursday, whereas she died 4 years ago. I was asleep when that posted. Iím not sure how that got into my threads? I have to change my password, I guess? Sorry to all!

1. That is scary.

I'd log out and change that password ASP.

3. 1. in your DU account, confirm the email is proper

2. In your email , look for something untoward
3. In a severe case, change of email address is warranted
4. Do a virus check.

I speculate that your password was too simple.
