【福禄祯祥1月18日文】驻华记者协会(Foreign Correspondents' Club of China, FCCC)今天声称,一些驻北京的外国记者的Gmail受到了黑客劫持。他们的邮箱被转发到了陌生的地址。

继12日谷歌(Google)公开表示其Gmail服务遭来自中国大陆的黑客攻击后,不断有人反映自己的Gmail就受到了攻击。为了防止进一步的攻击,Google也已把所有的Gmail设置成加密访问了。

驻华外国记者协会提醒驻华记者,检查自己的Gmail是否被黑客动了手脚。主要是看邮件是否被莫名其妙地设置了转发。检查步骤如下:

先登录你的Gmail帐号

点击右上角的“设置”(Settings),再点击“转发和POP/IMAP”(Forwarding and POP/IMAP)选项

看看你的转发选项,如果出现了你不能确认的陌生邮件地址,就要当心了。

你可以选择“禁用转发功能”(disable forwarding),就能阻止以后的邮件再被转发到其他地址了。

FCCC提醒所有会员,驻华外国记者过去两年来一直是黑客攻击的目标。今后要非常小心你点击的链接和你要打开的邮件附件,并且要经常杀毒。

FCCC去年9月曾声称,一些驻华外国记者助理的邮件受到病毒攻击目标

我也在此提醒所有与中国沾边的人,都赶快依照上述方法检查一下你的Gmail是否安全吧!(文/福禄祯祥-浮掠:http://fulue.com/

Ensuring Your Gmail Security

Foreign correspondents in a few bureaus in Beijng have recently discovered that their Gmail accounts had been hijacked. Their emails were being forwarded to a stranger’s address.
Here is how you can check if your Gmail has been compromised:

Log into your Gmail account

Click “Settings” in the upper right hand corner. Then click on the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab.

Look at the forwarding section. If there’s a mysterious email address you can’t recognize, then
that’s cause for concern.

You can check “disable forwarding” to stop future emails from being sent to this address, though other steps may also be necessary to make your account secure.

We remind all members that journalists in China have been particular targets of hacker attacks in the last two years. Please be very careful about what links you click on, what email attachments you open, and do run virus checks regularly.

If you have been hacked, please let the FCCC know at [email protected] We can help put you in touch with experts to run diagnostics.
