Beware hackers

Masset RCMP received a complaint from an individual in Port Clements, who said their email and internet had been accessed by a hacker and had resulted in them receiving a $600 phone bill.
Telus confirms the account was accessed by another user and recommended a firewall be installed on computers to prevent. Anti-virus programs do not stop these hackers as they can get a person’s user name and password and access an internet account from any computer.
If your computer has been accessed by hackers, contact your internet provider and change your username and password immediately. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Masset RCMP.
