Some words of warning from our friend Peter Bjorkbom, CEO of NEOFIRE
Dear LENR friends
I have today received disturbing news from one of my newly made friends that I met at the ICCF conference in Padova,
My friend has reported that his email account has been hacked during the visit in Italy. I myself has also had strange behaviours in my email client of which i do not now the reason for.
This shall cast no shadow on the very fine and well organised ICCF19 conference or on the beautiful city of Padova, it may have happened in any of the cities in Italy that my friend has visited.
It is not uncommon that computers get eavesdropped and/or hacked when connected to public wifi hotspots at hotels and other places. If someone has acquired the password for your email account they could be tapping your email without you knowing it.
If you belong to a security aware organisation you may already be protected by security measures implemented by your organisation. For example if you retrieve your mail from your office using secure tunnelling.
However I strongly advice all of you that have visited the conference, to promptly consider a change of password on your email account and on any other internet passwords that may have been used during the stay in Italy!
