Podcast and website HACKED!!


Meddac

Question

My website (vethelpcast.com) was hacked and the podcast show I have been doing was severely compromised over the weekend. It has all finally been shut down after working with the hosting companies this morning. I apologize to anyone that had been following along.

I am looking to revamp things and move forward, but I will continue on this forum until things are ready (when the wife let's me spend the money :biggrin:). I knew going in that there were risks of this happening, and I'm surprised it went as long as it did. Such is life I guess.

Just wanted to let everyone that listens know.

so sorry this happen , I had been listen to your shows, last thrusday evening I was listing to hadit blog talk radio show  and usually Jerrel or John  mentions that they have less than a minute before signing off...I think Jerrel had mention so many seconds left as they were in full conversation about a certain subject with this caller about her hubbys claim dor Hep-C...and all of a sudden  I was shut off  but the time slot may have run out, and then I listen to your blog an older blog of yours  telling about usin ght correct forms.

 

I do hope you get your blog poddcast radio show back up and running, I love the information you put out there.

Thanks again for all your shows and information and wisdom.

.........Buck

That is awful news!

There is a lot of phishing going on too, and I don't know how they do it but they get email addys and the entire contact lists and the phished person doesn't know it until they get complaints from people on their email list.

It has happened to 3 people I know.You can tell right away that it is not the way they write and there is a suspicious link in the email.

If you click on the link, your email is corrupted.

I don't know how you got hacked but I learned to never give out my email addy, particularly in any public format, like a internet radio show etc etc.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
