Hacked Again by Scott N. Schober

     Anyone can be hacked. ANYONE! Banks aren't in a hurry to fix it either. They aren't really concerned about one particular account. You have to stay vigilant. It's your responsibility to keep an eye on your accounts. The scariest part for "normal" folks is that even experts can be  hacked. Yes, the people who study this and are in the know can have their accounts messed up. You have to remember. Hackers get their information from you. Easy passwords are a start. Be creative with your passwords. If necessary, write them in a little book and keep it with you. It sure beats the alternative. The author says  consumers are too lazy or can't justify the expense of a new computer but it can be an investment in safety.

     I must confess to being one of the "lazy". Not because I can't justify the expense, I just can't afford it. I am not as vigilant as I should be with passwords either. This book made me realize just how important it is in today's world. You must be accountable. The writing is superb. It's mostly written in language you can understand, not geek-ese. *grin* I had no problem understanding and learning from Mr. Schober. It's an important issue and by showing that his company was a "victim", I really paid attention to what was said. I'd never heard a big company admit problems like this. Not until the news media pointed it out. You will learn to embrace the advice of this author and want to learn more. I was suitably impressed by Mr. Schober's honesty. We all need this book. Not just big companies or the rich and famous. We all do. Anyone who has a computer where they store important information needs this book. I know at first you will fuss. Don't. Just get a copy and read it over and over until you know what you need to do. I can't wait to read more of Mr. Schober's advice.

     I didn't find any issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's one to be kept in every household and read over and over.
