I have just performed THE MOST STUPID act of my whole life!

My ISP is Wanadoo. I received an email from "Wanadoo" stating that my agreement had been updated and to read the new terms "PRESS HERE" They asked for my pass word and how stupid can you be, I entered it.!!! Please tell me how can this stupdity be exploited? Ihave not entered my card number, I do not use internet banking, Ihave recently bought some electrical equipment over a secure line.

Please how do I best protect myself.

Get the password changed ASAP by contacting Wanadoo.

The password, I would have thought, would be of little use without the username as well.

We all make occasional mistakes because we are not concentrating or something is diverting our attention - my prime source for the latter is SWMBO...:-)

Many thanks for your reply Stuartli.

I've since found someone at wanadoo who assures me that the email was in fact from wanadoo. so no sweat!

I will be much more careful in future

Thanks again

Ronl
