David Airey, WARNING: Google’s GMail security failure leaves my business sabotaged

Mr. Roger’s mother told her little boy that when bad things happen, look for the helpers. If you have a few minutes, read through David Airey’s nightmare experience. A cracker hijacked David’s business domain name and then tried to sell it back. It seems the evil-doer had access to David’s email and timed the hijack with David’s vacation. Very scary story.

Then come back and read about the helpers. David’s story has a happy ending and the world is a friendly place.
