A friend has had her yahoo.com emails wiped.

This morning she was reading an email from a political friend here in Cairo only to have it completely wiped along with 7 others.

My friend is no more politically interested in things that we are however her friend is very active so I would guess it is the friend who is being monitored.
Just shows that in this new Egypt big brother is still watching.

This is a big problem with web based e-mail services they are easily hacked .I use a local e-mail client Windows Live mail which downloads the mails direct to my computer then I go to the web site and delete the same goes for the mails I send from the client once delivered whipe from the web site.

I have also several pop3 accounts which are not web based but paid accounts.

Have a password that is difficult to hack, ie. uppercase, lowercase, some numbers, longer the better. Also, avoid public computers and web cafes. Can never be too paranoid. ;)
