Wes :

Can you tell me who your e-mail provider is?

Customer:

bt broadband and i have changed my passwords several times

Wes :

let me see if there has been a rash of these with BT... it may be related to the heartbleed bug

Wes :

I don't see anything real recent... how many times has this happened?

Customer:

do i have to go back into e-mails for your reply

Wes :

no, just a rough idea of how many times you've been hacked... 2, 4 10?

Customer:

about 4 times now

Wes :

I'm trying to formulate an idea of how you're being compromised

Wes :

Try installing and running a scan with Malwarebytes antimalware... from www.malwarebytes.org

Wes :

there may be something on there that Bulldog isn't catching

Customer:
