Nice find there. Just goes to show the need to have different passwords for different sites you visit.
The love with 1Password makes this so much easier, now with their implementation of WatchTower and showing the Vulnerable sites. I have changed about 65% of them since the SSL Bug.

I made terrible mistakes when I was under a lot of stress. These so called techs got access because I gave it to them.. They didn't need a password. I redid new hard drive. MS word didn't work. I had the original disks and key, but the key did not work and it was correct. Got message that directed me to a help tech place, but it was an independent place outsourced. I was stupid. It cost me a lot of money and these people fixed it but I found out a lot of my applcations were missing. Found in trash later. Had to restore from back up a month at least back which I should have done to begin with. My computer may have been compromised but too long a story to go into now. Now I am very weary and untrustful. Just make sure when you need tech help that you go to the legitimate number and not just one that shows up or pops up on the internet or on the computer.

Good point, and sorry to hear you got done over. Its always the best option to use a local number out of the Yellow Pages (Aust) when you have a Computer problem. As Apple has said nothing in iCloud was compromised, doubles my belief that this was done with a phishing Scam that hit us Aussies a few moths ago now, and these hackers were sitting waiting for the right time to hit us.
@-3 months after someone went to a fake iCloud page and put in their credentials, would arouse suspicion as if it was done straight away.
They were clever, but nice to see PayPal do their part as well.
