Dateline 19 Jul 15 as posted on FACEBOOK
It was very scary. My reputation was at stake. Someone penetrated my timeline on facebook and posted a link in my name. The link showed number of indecent photos. I was informed by my son who being sunday was at home and checking facebook. He rushed and informed me about it. I immediately opened my account on FB and was shocked to find. In the meantime messages from friends poured in my inbox. Few phoned me too. I was felt totally embarrassed. In the meantime, my son started deleting photos. I opened my settings and tried to report to FB. Some advised me to deactivate the account and open a new one. My son was successful in intimating FB about these malicious posts. Those were though deleted from my account yet I was not sure whether those appeared still on my friends' account. I had to inform everyone that my account was breached and hacked. It was really a bad, very bad experience. Now a days every member of the family above 18 years is on facebook. Think of my mental agony. I am not yet over it. On advice of my son and facebook, I changed my password on facebook and my e-mail both. Facebook asked my permission to go into my computer too and find if any malware is present. However it could not find any, thanks to Quick Heal protection in my laptop.
Request everyone also to change your settings,’ who should see your post from Public to Friends only’
I would welcome any advice and suggestion how to deal such a situation to control the damage immediately and for future also.
IT MAY HAPPEN TO ANYONE ON FACEBOOK
